Tidbits: Obama's Plan To Change Washington

Ethics: At a Glance

Sunlight Before Signing: Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them.

Hold 21st Century Fireside Chats: Obama will bring democracy and policy directly to the people by requiring his Cabinet officials to have periodic national broadband townhall meetings to discuss issues before their agencies.

√ Conduct Regulatory Agency Business in Public:
Obama will require his appointees who lead the executive branch departments and rulemaking agencies to conduct the significant business of the agency in public, so that any citizen can see in person or watch on the Internet these debates.
