Looking for ideas to make government more transparent and accountable? Join the The Advisory Committee on Transparency on January 28th for "Kick-starting the 113th Congress," a series of short presentations on what Congress could do right now to make government more transparent.

The presentations will take place on Capitol Hill, in the Rayburn House Office Building, room 2203. After the dozen-or-so lightning talks, there will be an opportunity to mingle and talk with the presenters.

The lineup includes representatives of the Cato Institute, the Center for Effective Government, the Center for Responsive Politics, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the Data Transparency Coalition, GovTrack.us, Judicial Watch, the New America Foundation, OpenTheGovernment.org, Princeton University, Robinson & Yu LLC, the Sunlight Foundation, the Sunshine in Government Initiative, and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
