Wow, this is really a good thing…

It’s a new website — that, if it works, will shed light on an otherwise opaque legislative process in Sacramento.  Here’s the AP lede by Judy Lin:

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and former state Sen. Sam Blakeslee have teamed up with computer scientists to create a video search engine that they say will lift the shroud on government by allowing people to see, read and share what their representatives are doing in the state Capitol.

It also promises to track lobbyists’ support for specific bills, allowing the public to better see how special interests dominate what becomes law.
So, another thing besides the rain to be happy about today!
