SEC Open Data Loses House Battle – but is Wining War

For the third time in 18 months, the House of Representatives passed a multi-part financial services package bill with Rep. Robert Hurt's (R-VA) anti-open data proposal included, and sent it to the Senate. But yesterday's debates, votes, and White House statement sent a clear message to the Senate: restricting open data is controversial. If the Senate Banking Committee wants to craft a broadly popular financial services bill that will earn Democratic votes and President Obama's signature, the committee should leave out Rep. Hurt's open data exemption.
