    Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The bill was introduced by Senator Tom Coburn, for himself and Senators Barack Obama, Tom Carper and John McCain on April 6, 2006.[1] After two "secret holds" placed by Senators Ted Stevens, a Republican, and Robert Byrd, a Democrat were revealed and removed[4][5], it was passed unanimously in the Senate on September 7, 2006 and by the House on September 13, 2006. The bill was signed into law by President George W. Bush on September 26, 2006.[6]

    But Obama is talking about taking it MUCH further. Lets hope that becomes reality. That people once again can trust governments.
