About the Coalition

Who we are

We’re a coalition of citizens, public interest groups, trade associations, and businesses that champion greater governmental transparency through improved public access to and long-term preservation of congressional information.


For the benefit of the general public, we encourage Congress to broadly disseminate information about congressional activities and to create congressional information in ways that optimize its reuse and facilitate its long-term preservation. We marshal coalition members to create, share, and collaborate on legislative data byproducts for further reuse. And we educate Congress on the benefits of open data and partner with it to improve internal processes.


We believe the public has a right to know what its government is doing. Want to know what else we believe? Read our statement of principles
