Earlier, I wrote about a “Dear Colleague” letter circulating in the Senate written by Sen. Jim DeMint asking for roll call votes to be put online in XML format. The signers of the letter, so far, include a bipartisan cast of senators. They include Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen. John Ensign (R-NV), Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID), Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), and Sen. DeMint (R-SC).
If you aren’t represented by any of these senators, you might want to check with your senators and see if they’ll sign the letter to support the release of roll call votes in XML. This ought to be a no-brainer.
