New Site gives Maine some Transparency


There is a new Web site that is consolidating documents from the state government of Maine. GovRake now has session records from 1999 to 2008, bills from the current session, and hearing schedules. The site also features a public hearings calendar, a blog for the latest updates, and a list of state data sources. You can also listen or watch live sessions or hearings from the site.

This is a great new resource for the citizens of Maine. The tagline says it all “Keep raking, the needle is in there somewhere.”
