PORKBUSTERS UPDATE: Bridge to Nowhere on CNN Tonight; House to Put Lobbying Disclosure Online
Two items of interest tonight:
First, CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" will include a segment on the controversy. A CNN film crew was in Alaska yesterday and the segment may make some news tonight. AC360 comes on at 10:00 P.M. EST.
Second, aides to House Administration Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Ney, R-OH, say the panel expects to make all Lobbying Disclosure Act forms available online to the public within six months or so. Beginning in January 2006, the forms must be filed electronically and as soon as bugs are worked out of that process, the public access will be made part of the system, according to the aides.
Ney, of course, is under fire for allegations of involvement with lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
