Since its creation in January, the government watchdog group Integrity Florida has been releasing a series of reports on the state of Florida’s open government system. The organization says Florida’s Sunshine Laws, designed to make government dealings more transparent, is due for an overhaul.
Integrity Florida has posted more than 600 documents online, including the personal financial disclosure filings from 2011, 2010 and the first term in office for Florida’s legislators and top state officials.
Reccently, the government watch dog group, Integrity Florida, named Florida number one for government corruption. The group’s executive director, Dan Krassner, says the organization looked at a number of things when making that ranking.
"An entity called State Integrity Investigation, a separate group from Integrity Florida, released a Florida Corruption Risk report card. On that report card, they gave our state a failing grade for ethics enforcement agencies," Krassner said.
