Good government bills popular this session

Most every session there are a couple of bills that aim to boost transparency in state government. (There are also usually a few that try to do the opposite.)

But this session, there's a longer list than usual of measures that would open government further by collecting and putting more public information online.

Many are simple moves, such as installing more cameras for webcasting meetings from the Capitol, or putting House roll call votes online. Others are a little more complex, such as the proposed sunshine portal, which would put updated budget and investment information on the Web. All are worth a look by lawmakers and the public.
