“Bill Introduced for Open Access to Federally Funded Research—FRPAA Revisited 
by Paula J. Hane

Six Representatives from two parties introduced the Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA, H.R. 5037) in the House of Representatives on April 15, 2010. The bill would essentially extend the existing open access (OA) mandate for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) across all of the major funding agencies in the U.S. federal government. FRPAA is already pending in the Senate and now has a serious shot at adoption, according to Suber. The sponsors want OA, not just a trial balloon or a symbolic flag in the ground.”
