I think it would be great idea --- but I hope you'll forgive me if I don't hold my breath waiting for it. Putting their schedules out where just anybody could see them would be the first step onto the slippery slope of (horrors!) accountability for Congresscritters.
I'd be more interested in knowing who they are meeting with, what particular pieces of legislation they are working on, and who's giving them money, in real time. These guys operate behind a wall of secrecy, and you guys in the press don't do much about it.
I'd also like to see real time information on their travels, who is paying the freight for them and staff. We don't find out about these junkets and Superbowl trips until months or years after the fact. We're not getting timely information.
