• Description

Since 2015, the Project On Government Oversight has welcomed each new Congress with a collection of recommendations for legislative action to strengthen democracy, crack down on misconduct, and reduce waste and corruption. These recommendations are based largely on findings from our own investigations, and together have formed essential, nonpartisan "to do" lists for Congress.

Many of the recommendations in this report focus on issues POGO has championed since our founding in 1981, such as making government spending less wasteful and more effective or providing insiders with meaningful whistleblower protections. But this report also reflects a new and growing focus on equity and fairness in our justice system.
