Townhall– On Tuesday, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) introduced the Stop the Outlay of Payments (STOP) Act, a bill that will deny taxpayer funding from organizations not properly transparent about their projects. The legislation will effectively serve to provide accountability and enforcement, to protect taxpayers from groups like the EcoHealth Alliance, an NIH grant recipient which has not been forthcoming about what it does with funds.
“Under the STOP Act, grant recipients have 120 days to come into compliance after being suspended and can continue to receive support from other grants if an agreement has been made to resolve the suspension of the grant,” explains a press release from Sen. Ernst’s office.

She must have had a bad accident with farm machinery years ago, what else would explain that hideous toupee?
The federal government is so fucking far off the rails Constitutionally that a bill like this is pointless.
They spend “money” like there’s no tomorrow…oh wait…
All the new laws in the world won’t make a difference if the DOJ and others won’t enforce them, or do so unequally.
