Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has re-introduced his “Audit The Fed” bill, titled the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2015. A press release from Paul states:

Known widely as “Audit the Fed,” the bill calls to eliminate restrictions on Government Accountability Office (GAO) audits of the Federal Reserve and mandate that the Federal Reserve’s credit facilities, securities purchases, and quantitative easing activities would be subject to Congressional oversight.

“A complete and thorough audit of the Fed will finally allow the American people to know exactly how their money is being spent by Washington,” Paul said in his statement. “The Fed’s currently operates under a cloak of secrecy and it has gone on for too long. The American people have a right to know what the Federal Reserve is doing with our nation’s money supply. The time to act is now.”

The bill has 30 co-sponsors, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

With Republicans now in control of both the House and the Senate, Paul’s bill has been reported to have a greater likelihood of gaining approval, although it is unlikely that President Obama would sign it. Last month, Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen said she would “forcefully” challenge efforts to pass Audit the Fed legislation.

“It’s important to make sure that we can make the decisions we think are best free of short-run political interference with respect to monetary policy,” Yellen said on December 17th of last year. “History shows not only in the United States, but around the world, that central bank independence promotes better economic performance.”
