Open government proponents are calling for more transparency, and they are taking that message to the streets.
Lawmakers included $17 million in the one-week bill to keep the government open. This is still short of the $35 million the administration requested, but it will help keep some of the open governments running.
Several sites, including Data.gov, the IT Dashboard and the FEDRamp cloud efforts, could be shut down in the next two months if the administration doesn't get more money under the E-government fund. In all, nine sites are on the list to be discontinued by July 30 if OMB doesn't find money to keep it going. Experts say OMB has several ways to keep the sites up, including pass-the-hat among agencies.
