'Audit the Federal Reserve' bill gains steam
'Audit the Federal Reserve' bill gains steam -- latimes.com

Quote:
The support of Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) gives a major boost to Paul's 26-year push to allow the Government Accountability Office to conduct detailed audits of some of the Fed's crucial activities, such as setting monetary policy and short-term lending to banks through its discount window.
Both actions are couched in various amounts of secrecy: minutes of monetary policy meetings aren't publicly released for three weeks, transcripts are shielded for five years, and banks that borrow through the discount window are never revealed to avoid the perception that they might be in trouble. Federal Reserve officials oppose the legislation, but Frank said he was committed to including it as part of a package of bills to revamp the financial regulatory system.
