+ - NYS bill would require state records to be online->

Submitted by NewYorkCountryLawyer
NewYorkCountryLawyer (912032) writes "Micah Kellner, the same New York State assemblyman who last year submitted a bill providing a tax credit to open source developers has now proposed the 'Open New York Act', a law which would make it mandatory for state agencies to put almost all of their public records on the internet. According to Kellner's office the law would 'revolutionize the relationship between New Yorkers and their state government, requiring all state agencies to make their records available through a central website—where the data can be used by activists, entrepreneurs, and others to create a host of applications useful in everyday life.' The Open Government Foundation, Citizens Union, and New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), all support the bill."
