House passes bill to provide transparency in EAJA

*Editor’s Note* – I have not read and studied HR 3279. Here’s the link to the study. The information provided in the article linked to below is the opinion of the Western Livestock Journal. Please take the time to read and understand the bill and how it will completely affect the Equal Access to Justice Act. We know how politics and government work and can never rely on their or the news’ information.

When spending money, most citizens and businesses know and keep records on how much they pay and to whom. That hasn’t been the case for almost 20 years for the government, at least in the case of the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA). In an attempt to remedy that situation, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill, HR 3279, the “Open Book on Equal Access to Justice Act,” on Dec.1 that would reinstate requirements that federal agencies track and report the attorney fees awarded under the EAJA. The legislation passed by a unanimous voice vote.
