A Great Idea From Utah: Database of Public Meetings

The state of Utah is ahead of the times.

They have a web site where the public can find out about the dates, times, and locations of all public meetings of state and local governmental entities.

Seems like the state of Washington--the state where Microsoft pretty much invented modern computing--could bring itself up to the Utah standard.
