POGO’s 2017 Baker’s Dozen Wishlist for Congress

“The Project On Government Oversight (POGO) has unveiled its biennial list of 13 policy areas ripe for Congressional action.

Called the “Baker’s Dozen,” these are priorities demanding immediate attention by lawmakers who are serious about improving the effectiveness of government and saving taxpayers billions of dollars. POGO’s last Baker’s Dozen resulted in Congress enacting bipartisan legislation to strengthen the independence of Inspectors General, hold those who retaliate against whistleblowers in the Veterans Administration (VA) accountable, and modernize the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).”
