Group gives Arizona 'C' for legislative openness

PHOENIX -- A national pro-transparency group said the Arizona Legislature isn't doing a great job of sharing information with the public.

The nonpartisan, nonprofit group Sunlight Foundation released transparency report cards on Monday for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The group analyzed legislative websites to determine how readily legislative information is publicly available. Grades were determined according to completeness, timeliness, ease of electronic access, machine readability, use of commonly owned standards and permanence.

Arizona received a "C" grade. The group determined Arizona's legislative website was difficult to use.

Eight states received an "A," while six states received an "F."

The Sunlight Foundation said it should be easy to access bills, votes and lawmaker contacts.
