We believe that our government institutions are important. They provide critical services that people depend upon and protect our rights.

Too frequently, however, we have been let down by failures in these institutions and those we have entrusted to serve the public. Those failures end up costing taxpayers.

Senate Republican solutions will rebuild trust in government by increasing transparency, improving accessibility, and doing more to hold public officials accountable for their actions.
