State-by-State Sunshine Review

E!! found an interesting little resource for comparing transparency resources across the nation.

Sunshine Review's mission "is to create a place where regular people have the opportunity to breathe new life into the political system by demanding a transparent and honest government. Sunshine Review collects and shares information about government transparency, openness and accountability at the state and local level."

Beyond the main page, there also exists state-by-state transparency rankings of county websites. Currently Arizona tops the list while Vermont brings up the tail. Nevada comes in at a mediocre 31st place.

Nevada clearly has some work to do. Let's hope that in the future the Silver State can make it up higher on the list.
