Minnesota gets middling grade on group's transparency test

Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger Updated: March 11, 2013 - 2:56 PM

Minnesota's legislative transparency got a C grade from the Sunlight Foundation, joining 19 other states in the middle of the pack.

The state got demerits, according to the open government group, for not making its Senate votes easily accessible to the public. But it got extra credit for its archiving of legislative activity online.

While Senate votes are available on the web, they may require sorting through legislative journals.

South Dakota, North Dakota and Iowa each joined Minnesota in the C-graded group. Wisconsin earned a D, according to the Sunlight Foundation.
