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.
