Rep. Turner Questions Geithner on Transparency, Introduces RESTORE FOIA Bill

RESTORE FOIA Act Would Allow Taxpayers to Look in on Bailout Decisions 

Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) questioned Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner about his Department’s transparency when it came to the bailout process. Since the decision by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) to slash approximately 20,000 current and future Delphi Salaried Retirees by up to 70 percent, Treasury, PBGC, and the President’s Auto Task Force have relied upon loopholes in the present FOIA regulations to remain less than open about what had transpired and was paid for with taxpayer’s dollars.  Rep. Turner's RESTORE FOIA bill (HR 4232) will close those loopholes.
