Texas gets B minus grade on website transparency ranking

From Texas Watchdog:

Texas state and local government websites have garnered only a B minus grade in a nationwide rating of the transparency value of the information government agencies post online.

The B minus comes from Sunshine Review, a nonprofit that advocates for open government.


The government entities' sites were ranked against a checklist of items, including how well they offered citizens information about budgets, meetings, lobbying, audits, contracts, public records and taxes.
