The measure that will shed light on federal spending data is expected to sail through the House when Congress returns from recess. A version of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act cleared the Senate last week and brought transparency advocates a step closer to governmentwide financial data standards. Hudson Hollister, executive director of the Data Transparency Coalition, explained differences between the House and Senate versions of the DATA Act to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
The Office of Management and Budget's markup of the Senate's version of the bill changes language around requiring data standards and how the information should be published. Open government advocates are concerned about OMB's suggestions.

The House-passed DATA Act creates a five-member commission to oversee government transparency.
