Sunlight Foundation gives Mass. an ‘F’ for legislative website

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — An analysis by a nonpartisan nonprofit that focuses on making government transparent and accountable is giving the Legislature in Massachusetts an ‘F' grade for how they make legislative information available.

The Sunlight Foundation gave both Massachusetts and Rhode Island the lowest grade possible. Others in that category are Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky, and Nebraska.

Vermont got a 'B' and Maine got a 'D.'

New Hampshire and Connecticut got an 'A' grade for how they make legislative information available.

The Sunlight Foundation also gave the top mark to Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, North Carolina, Texas and Washington.

The foundation rated legislative websites on such factors as completeness of the information on bills, votes and events; how quickly the information was updated; how easily the sites are to navigate; if the information was easily viewed with common software; and if information was preserved for future viewing.
