The Daily Countable: Gov't Transparency & Disaster Relief

by Countable | 10.20.17

Good Friday, Countable friends, and happy weekend. We're working to keep your government transparent and accountable.

On the Radar

I bet you miss The House of Representatives, don't you? After Congressmembers' week-long recess, we democracy nerds at Countable miss them too. But never fear: the House is back in action on Monday!

On The House's agenda: bills to promote transparency in judicial settlements and regulatory rulings, and potentially the budget resolution that was amended and passed this week by the Senate.

Speaking of the Upper Chamber, the Senate also comes back to DC on Monday, and is set to vote on the final $36.5 billion disaster relief package, sending it to President Trump's desk. Now's a great time to review those bills and let your Reps know what you think.

Your Gov at a Glance 👀
