6th item in The Republican Contract with America

The sixth item promised in the Republican Contract with America is very straight forward:

"Require committee meetings to be open to the public."

The Republicans made a very feeble effort to implement this in the first couple of years with some success. Today it is business as usual. In fact, many conservative think tanks feel that the political process has got even more "back door" in the last few years. Most of the legislation that was just passed had certain meetings held that the public was NOT invited to.

The Republicans definately do not hold to this promise at all. This promise is a complete failure, in fact, we may have lost ground on this promise...

Contract Score:
Promises Kept 3
Promises Broken 3

I really agree with you on this. There has to be a way for the public to view and record debate that goes into decisions. I've seen it go so far ( on a public access board and justified by the city council doing the same thing) as a committee holding a closed door session then coming out to vote on a motion to, "approve the proposal about equipment" with no public record of what is being decided.
