24 Days Of Local Sunlight - Day 16

Today I would like give a shout out to Louisiana's Between the Lines.

Between the Lines is written by Jeffrey Sadow, who is a political science professor Louisiana State University.  He also writes  Louisiana Legislature Log which keeps track of what is happening in Baton Rouge.  Jeff does a great job keeping track of ethics news from around Louisiana.  The posts are thoughtful and he writes about things with a practical lens.  For example, this post about disclosure requirements for contributions from political appointees or this  post questioning earmark reforms and offering new solutions.

I am definitely glad to read the perspective of a political science professor on local transparency issues.
