Web Budget Docs Pledged

letters@govexec.com

House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., told members of Congress last week that he wants to see the full budget markup on the Internet as quickly as possible so that anyone with access to the World Wide Web can download it and participate in the budget process.

"Every talk radio show host, every single potential critic, every columnist will have access to the same data, but so will citizens, without editing by anyone," Gingrich said. "Every citizen and every student and every class will be able to pull up this budget in virtually real time, look at it at the same time as the Washington insiders, have all the knowledge we have, and truly move toward a balanced budget in the right way, with the American people participating."

The site includes a summary of the balanced budget agreement as well as analysis of the budget and letters about the agreement from Gingrich and Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., to the Clinton administration.

Gingrich said more detailed documents would be posted on the Web site "as rapidly as we can."
