It really is wonderful living in the state of Maryland. The government is run very well here.
Maryland came out 40th among the fifty states in an investigation into integrity in state government.
That's according to the nonprofit group, Center for Public Integrity, that gave Maryland a D- because of difficulty in getting information.
The state got an overall grade of D minus...with an F in public access to information.
Randy Barrett of the organization that spearheaded the study said one barrier in particular seems to keep the state among those with the least: transparency.
Barrett said, while there are laws on the books that guarantee the public access to government records, they often are not used or enforced.
The state also received F's in executive accountability, state pension fund management, and legislative accountability.
OH, forget what I just wrote. I guess that what happens when you live in a one party state.
