Your state’s integrity
Posted on March 21, 2012
Take a look at what I found last night:
The State Integrity Investigation is a $1.5 million public collaboration between the Center for Public Integrity, Global Integrity and Public Radio International, designed to expose practices that undermine trust in state capitols — and spotlight the states that are doing things right.
The State Integrity Investigation is an unprecedented, data-driven analysis of each state’s laws and practices that deter corruption and promote accountability and openness. Experienced journalists graded each state government on its corruption risk using 330 specific measures. The Investigation ranked every state from one to 50. Each state received a report card with letter grades in 14 categories, including campaign finance, ethics laws, lobbying regulations, and management of state pension funds.
