Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Improve AI Transparency in Federal Gov’t

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., and Ranking Member Jamie Raskin, D-Md., have introduced the Federal AI Governance and Transparency Act, enabling the government to improve the transparency of artificial intelligence use in federal agencies.

The bipartisan bill aims to achieve its goals by creating additional public accountability mechanisms, defining federal standards for responsible AI use and harmonizing existing laws with AI policy, among other endeavors, the Oversight Committee said.

Comer said that the Act will ensure that the federal government is responsibly using AI to improve government operations while protecting privacy, civil rights and civil liberties.

The lawmakers’ bill is not the first effort to ensure the responsible use of the technology. In January, Sens. Maria Cantwell, Martin Heinrich, Mike Rounds and Todd Young asked the Senate Appropriations Committee to allot $10 million to establish an AI policy unit within the National Institute of Standards and Technology responsible for ensuring safe AI use.
