One Giant Leap for Transparency

True to her word, newly elected Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand has followed up on a pre-election pledge to make her daily schedule public. This is, needless to say, a highly unusual practice in Washington.

The first one is here.

* Breakfast honoring Rep. Ike Skelton, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

* Congressional Open House with constituents visiting from the district.

* Floor Votes (See Congressional Record)

* Ceremonial Swearing-In with Speaker Pelosi

* Reception for constituents

* Rep. Gillibrand had no scheduled meetings with registered lobbyists.
