|By Allison Orr|
In this new report, Congressional Information and the Internet, the Open House Project has presented recommendations to the US House of Representatives to use technology to increase transparency and public access to the work and members of the US House of Representatives.
The Open House Project is a bi-partisan working group of government and legislative experts, congressional staff, non-profit organisers and bloggers investigating ways to open up congressional procedures.
The report outlines 10 recombinations, which are the most significant reforms since the mid-1990s, said Rob Bluey, director of the Center for Media and Public Policy at The Heritage Foundation.
