New York unveils Sunlight 2.0

Some encouraging news out of New York. Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has released version 2 of their open government portal, SunlightNY.com.

Sunlight 2.0 features new data, a more user-friendly format, and innovative features to increase openness and accountability. The revamped Web site provides the public easy access to information on their tax dollars, elected officials, legislation, and other state business.

Congratulations to our transparency minded peers in New York for continuing to bring government business out of the shadows and into the light. We hope their success continues.
