Today, the US House of Representatives is hosting a 2-day conference about how they can be more open and transparent about what they do under the dome. They are exploring ideas and recommendations on how to create transparency

on how legislative information is created and made available for public access. You might be following the conversation on Twitter (#LDTC) or watching the live webcast.

What do you think should come out of the conference? What results are you looking for and what ideas do you have to create more efficiency and transparency for the US House?
