House opens up expenditure reports

In case you didn't catch the Twitter update this morning, the House has released its quarterly Statement of Disbursements (SOD) report and — for the first time ever — they're in an electronic format.

The SOD report was previously only available as bound paper volumes from the Longworth House Office Building.

The 3,000+ page report is quite extensive. Check out the full reports for a detailed look, but here are the quarterly amounts of Nevada's representatives:
While the House should have gone the extra mile and released these in a more machine-readable format (e.g. spreadsheets), I'm glad to see House leadership follow through on their promise.

I'm hoping to eventually import these records into TransparentNevada and make them searchable. Stay tuned.
