The Best Legislation of the New Legislature...

...has all ready been introduced.

I don't care how much teeth they put in ethics reform, it cannot top this:

Just a Bill: Phone numbers

Madison -- It's a common frustration: You finally find that Web site you're looking for, and then you can't find a phone number.Rep. Marlin Schneider (D-Wisconsin Rapids) wants to change that, at least for state agencies. Under AB-7, each state agency would have to feature at least one phone number -- in bold -- on the main page of its Web site. There must also be a link to phone numbers for other units of the agency, the bill says.


If only they could make it for the entire web...

Thanks, Marlin!

Agreed -- any attempt to improve the ease at which citizens can participate is an improvement.

We've got a long way to go...


This is also a handy tool:

How about getting this through for everyone: Illinois residents seeking information from state agencies will no longer be frustrated by automated telephone answering systems. Under a new law going into effect January 1, state agencies that use automated answering systems must offer an option to speak with a live operator.
