As inflation hits historic levels in the U.S. and Americans begin to search for answers, the Functional Government Initiative (FGI), a nonpartisan organization that demands government transparency, announced information requests they’re sending to government agencies.
With these requests, FGI is hoping it can bring to light policies that are driving inflation and its impact on Americans. Peter McGinnis, a spokesman for the organization, noted that the dysfunction in Washington, D.C., continues to draw the ire of the public.
“The Functional Government Initiative exists to explore what is driving that dysfunction and shine a light on the key decisions causing it,” he said in a recent news release on the FGI website. “Right now, inflation is front and center in this discussion.”
