As part of their Open States project, the Sunlight Foundation recently released their Open Legislative Data Report Card.  They rated each state legislature’s website on the following criteria: completeness; timeliness; ease of access; machine readability; standards; permanence.  You can read more details about the criteria behind the ratings at their blog. The Report Card also offers details on some of the ratings for each state (for example, why Missouri scored highly on permanence). The final tally of grades was:

  • A: 8 states
  • B: 11 states
