Transparency is not a partisan issue. The American people deserve accountability from their elected officials in Washington. I am committed to bringing transparency to my work by sharing information about each of my meetings on my website, introducing and supporting legislation to strengthen independent watchdog groups, and work to ensure that our government is accountable to the American people.

WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Tom O'Halleran (AZ-01) released a statement following the government shutdown:
"It is disappointing that leaders in Washington have chosen to allow the government to shut down rather than put forward a thoughtful, bipartisan bill that funds our military, Children's Health Insurance Program, and community health centers and provide stability for DREAMers.
