Montana State legislature posts social calendars online

January 11, 2009View for printing

The Montana Legislature is offering its constituents food for thought by posting its 2009 calendar of special interest group-sponsored brunches and mixers online for the first time.

The electronic posting of the Legislature's social calendar strengthens openness in government, said House Speaker Bob Bergren.

"We want to make sure this (legislative session) is a transparent process," Bergren said.

He said it's also better than a paper calendar for keeping the state's 150 legislators informed.
