White House Seeks Feedback on 2nd Open Government Action Plan

WhiteHouseThe White House wants public input on its proposal to create a second action plan that will work to further encourage openness and civic participation in government activities, according to a Wednesday blog post.

Lisa Ellman and Hollie Russon Gilman write the Obama administration has fulfilled 24 out of its 26 transparency commitments since the first national action plan launched in September 2011 under the multilateral Open Government Partnership.

More than 9.6 million Americans use the White House’s “We The People” online service to petition the government on a range of issues, according to the post.

Syracuse University and the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation recently held workshops to gather ideas for improving metrics for citizen participation in the rulemaking process.

The government also plans to accept public comment feedback through Google Plus, Twitter and Quora social networks.
