Public disclosure has come to mean availability on the internet, free of charge, for everyone. HLOGA [Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007 (Public Law No. 100-81)] brings lobbying disclosure records into the modern world with a requirement that the House of Representatives – via the Clerk of the House’s office – and the Senate – via the Secretary of the Senate’s office – each make the filings available online “in a searchable, sortable, and downloadable manner.”
