Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) announced that she has started to post her weekly schedule of official meetings on her website to promote further transparency and openness in government and to stay accountable to her constituents.  Going forward, Bustos’ constituents will be able to see online who she is meeting with, and what she is doing, in her official capacity as their representative in Congress.  Bustos’ schedule of official meetings will be updated weekly and can be found HERE.

“I believe the best form of government is an open and honest government, and one that serves the people, not the special interests,” said Congresswoman Cheri Bustos.  “Because of this strong belief, I am proud to post my official schedule on my website, so my constituents can see who I am meeting with on a weekly basis.”  

In addition to posting her official schedule online, Bustos also announced she has joined the bipartisan Transparency Caucus, which is co-chaired by Congressman Mike Quigley (IL-5), a fellow Illinoisan.  The Transparency Caucus seeks to enact legislation that will bring openness and accessibility to the federal government.
