Open Gov't Survey: Washington Good and Idaho Bad

This Spokesman-Review story describes a ranking of the 50 states on open government laws. Washington ranks 4th best and Idaho is down in the potato cellar at 44th place.

The survey looks at laws on the books, not how (or if) they are enforced. We suspect Washington would place lower if actual compliance were factored in.
