A long-running Washington watchdog group that closely tracks federal regulations is getting a new name.
OMB Watch will now be known as the Center for Effective Government, the group announced Monday. Katherine McFate, the group’s president and CEO, said the new moniker is a better reflection of their work.
“Center for Effective Government better reflects the overall goal of our work and the breadth of the issues we cover. It makes clear our commitment to promoting the idea that ‘government matters’ and that an effective, responsive, accountable government is fundamental to restoring public trust in democracy and to achieving a more just, sustainable, inclusive economy,” McFate said in a statement.
