POLICY UPDATE: Congressional Budget Justification Transparency Act
The House passed the Senate’s version of the Congressional Budget Justification Transparency (CBJ) Act (S. 272) by a vote of 423-1. The bill now head’s to the President’s desk for signature. This bill has been a part of the Data Coalition Initiative’s advocacy. The CBJ Act improves public access to agency documents produced each year that describe past spending and performance, as well as priorities and plans for the next year’s budget. It establishes a common repository for budget details and will also require agencies to publish their annual budget justifications as structured data, supporting efforts to analyze and compare budget information across agencies and years.
