Arkansas Legislature Gets An "A" For Website
An analysis by a nonpartisan nonprofit that focuses on making government transparent and accountable is giving the Legislatures in Arkansas, New Hampshire and Connecticut an 'A' grade for how they make legislative information available.
The Sunlight Foundation also gave the top mark to Georgia, Kansas, North Carolina, Texas and Washington.
Two New England states got an 'F.' They are Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Others in that category are Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky, and Nebraska.
Vermont got a 'B' and Maine got a 'D.'
The foundation rated legislative websites on such factors as completeness of the information on bills, votes and events; how quickly the information was updated; how easily the sites are to navigate; if the information was easily viewed with common software; and if information was preserved for future viewing.
