Official Beta Launch: State Government Information From OpenGovernment.org

Direct to OpenGovernment.org

From an O'Reilly Radar Post by Alex Howard:

OpenGovernment.org, a free, open source online portal designed to make open state government available to citizens, launched this morning.

OpenGovernment.org makes it easier for citizens to learn about pending legislation and their legislators by combining open government data, information about state legislators, multiple databases of voting information, social mentions and news coverage into a lightweight online user interface. If that sounds a lot like what OpenCongress.org does for the federal government, it should: it's the same model, adapted to the state level.

OpenGovernment.org is a joint project of the Participatory Politics Foundation and the Sunlight Foundation. The beta version has launched with information for legislatures in California, Louisiana, Maryland, Texas, and Wisconsin. The nonprofit is actively seeking funding to expand to all 50 U.S. states and major cities.
