Committee Votes: That’s The Deal

I happened to check on the list of cosponsors to H. Res. 231: Amending the Rules of the House of Representatives to require all committees post record votes on their web sites within 48 hours of such votes — the number is growing. It now has 131 cosponsors, with 27 added in the last two months. That’s some good work on the Hill for whoever has been rounding up support for the bill.

All of the cosponsors are Republican. Does anyone know why that would be? Do Members not bother to seek out support across the aisle, do Members not listen to Dear Colleague letters from across the aisle, or are the Democrats not interested in actual transparency reform?
