"Taxpayer Funded Pension Disclosure Act empowers citizens with the data to hold their government 
accountable .... 
Releasing data on federal 
pensions will require an act of Congress, 
and we are leading the way."
U.S. Representative Ron DeSantis (FL-6)

"Shining a light on federal pensions is the next phase of the transparency revolution. We applaud Representative DeSantis for his courageous and bold leadership in introducing legislation to make that possible."

Shouldn't you have the right to see how much retirement pension your retired Congressman or U.S. Senator receives? 
Shouldn't you have the right to see the retirement payout to any retired federal employee, like former IRS boss Lois Lerner? What about the pension of convicted former House Speaker Denny Hastert?
Great question.

Today, you have NO right to know. Together, with U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, we are aggressively spearheading an effort to change the law. The Taxpayer-Funded Pension Transparency Act makes federal pension information subject to the Freedom of Information Act. 

In other words, for the first time, federal pensions would be subject to sunshine! It opens the books on federal pensions.

Read our OpenTheBooks - 'The Case For Federal Pension Transparency.' This legislation ushers in the next step in the Transparency Revolution!

It's time to Open The Books on federal retirement pensions!

Even states like California, New York, Illinois and Oregon have transparency of public pensions.

In Illinois, it's how we busted a pair of union bosses who substitute taught in the public schools for 1 day and started collecting state teacher retirement pensions of $1 million - despite a state law expressly designed to stop them!

Together, we will Open The Books on Federal Pensions.
