A conversation with Idaho Reports on legislative transparency

I had the opportunity to join the Idaho Reports Podcast this week to discuss options for legislative transparency reforms to help citizens better engage in the process. While there are several good resources available after action is taken on a bill, it is difficult to know ahead of time what lawmakers are working on.

This is why we believe there should be at least a three-day notice for public hearings, remote testimony options provided for all public hearings, and legislative bill pages should be updated in real-time when a roll call vote occurs so you don’t have to be actively watching floor action to know if a bill was adopted.  

On the positive side, we also discussed how Idaho's legislative budget process is very transparent and could become a model for other states.
