Liberal advocacy group plans 'Sunshine Squad' campaign
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Liberal advocacy group Progress Michigan is planning a "Sunshine Squad" campaign that aims to make the Michigan legislature more accountable.
The group says a new website is part of the effort, which seeks to improve ethics and transparency at the state government level.
The website features current members of the Michigan legislature broken down by committee assignment and House or Senate district. Each legislator-specific page features committee assignments and searchable financial contributions so residents can examine donations.
The financial and committee information continues efforts that Progress Michigan began when the legislature was discussing auto no-fault insurance.
