U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), the Senate’s leading foe of government waste, is kicking off Sunshine Week – an annual celebration all about transparency – by introducing a number of legislative measures to bring more transparency and accountability to the federal government.

The initiatives will help ensure Iowans have access to information like:

  • Travel itineraries of junkets taken by the President and his political appointees to track carbon emissions to expose climate hypocrisy
  • The price tag disclosing the cost of every government project supported with your money;
  • An alert system to expose boondoggles that are billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule;
  • And much more.
