Public Research bill introduced in House

The Federal Research Public Access Act, HR 5037, was recently introduced in the House.  This bill would ensure free online access to results of research funded by taxpayers dollars.  The bill has been referred to the Committee on Oversight & Government Reform.  Maryland Congressmen Elijah Cummings and Chris Van Hollen both serve on this committee.  There is also a mirror bill in the Senate—S 1373.  The Senate bill was referred to committee in June 2009 and has not had any activity since.  For additional information, go to the District Dispatch posting.
