Dan Meek: Public still left out in session

Legislative leaders say that the 2008 session is a “test” of having annual sessions. So far, the Legislature is flunking the test. The leaders say that all committee hearings and votes on 96 of the 100 bills must take place between February 4th and 12th. Yet, as of February 3, the web site provides zero information about any of the bills to be addressed and no schedule for any of the hearings. How is the public supposed to participate, with no information about what is actually being considered or when?
