BSA Supports Bill to Make Government Data Open to the Public
WASHINGTON – November 15, 2017 – BSA | The Software Alliance supports the passage of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (FEPBA) of 2017 (H.R. 4174). Government-generated data is a national resource that can serve as a powerful engine for creating new jobs and a catalyst for economic growth. Importantly, Title II of FEPBA includes the OPEN Government Data Act, making non-sensitive government data more open, available, and usable for the general public. Making such data more readily available will improve government transparency, promote government efficiency, and foster innovation of data-driven technologies such as artificial intelligence. BSA commends Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Representatives Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Trey Gowdy (R-SC), and Derek Kilmer (D-WA) for their leadership in bringing FEPBA to the floor, and looks forward to working with the House and Senate to secure its final passage into law.
