OMB’s New Public-Facing Apportionment Tracker a Win for Government Accountability
OMB’s apportionment website is available here: https://apportionment-public.max.gov.
The website marks an important step forward for government transparency and accountability, and we encourage ongoing improvements, such as modest changes that would make it easier for Congress and the public to determine when and where new documents have been added.
Further action is needed to make this important transparency permanent. The requirement to post apportionment documents on this public website currently expires at the end of the fiscal year. That is why our organizations urge Congress to make this transparency requirement permanent in any final FY 2023 appropriations legislation. We applaud the House Appropriations Committee for including a provision to make this requirement permanent in the FY 2023 Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill it recently approved.
