Fast access to hearings online

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has started posting preliminary transcripts of its hearings on its website, making them accessible just days after the hearing is held. Until now, it took more than six months for public-domain transcripts of most hearings to become available because they had to go through an arduous proofing and approval process before finally being published by the GPO. The FGI blog has even posted a list of hearings resulting from a Google search of the committee website.
Hat tip to Free Government Info for this one.
