Debate over open SASC markups likely to reemerge

August 5, 2014, Politico

Roger Zakheim is quoted in this article regarding the renewed push from open-government advocates to hold the Senate Armed Services Committee's defense authorization markup in the public eye:

“The advantage of being open is there’s so much suspicion over concerns about transparency in Congress, and you remove that entirely,” said Roger Zakheim, a former House Armed Services staffer who is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. “Given the gravity of the issues and the legislation, and the amount of money involved, I think it’s probably appropriate that you make that open to debate.”
