Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R) said Tuesday that he intends to sponsor legislation to make government spending information more accessible to the public.

Cornyn’s proposal calls for expanding the federal government’s spending Web site, which allows visitors to search federal contracts and grants. According to the Associated Press, a pilot program would give Americans the option of searching for such expenditures as government staff salaries and travel costs.
