Publishing Votes to Hold for Further Study is the Official RI Senate Policy

Rhode Island Senate Director of Communications Greg Pare informs me, in response to an inquiry, that Senate Committees have been publishing the committee votes to hold bills for further study since last year (he sent along a few examples, available here, here, here, and here), as part of a set of rules changes supported by Senate President Teresa Paiva-Weed that include…

  • Requiring that electronic votes taken on the floor of the Senate be posted online in real time
  • Requiring that work continue towards placing committee votes online in a timely manner; and
  • Calling for greater use of technology to broadcast Senate activities, such as committee hearings.

Transparency in RI, wouldn’t that be nice, then we could really see what our Senators and Representatives do….but then they might lose their jobs! One could only “hope!”
