ALBANY, N.Y. – New York officials are celebrating Sunshine Week by issuing a one-year report on initiatives aimed at getting residents involved in government.
Open NY is an initiative aimed at increasing citizens' engagement with their government, and encouraging New Yorkers to visit the State's comprehensive data transparency website.
The report, which reviews accomplishments and
sets the stage for the future of the initiative, is available on Data.NY.Gov.
"Open NY has broken down artificial barriers and used technology that has put an unprecedented amount of information at New Yorkers' fingertips," Governor Cuomo said. "This convenient and easily comparable access to the workings of state government is a testament to the work we have done to make government more accessible, more modern, and more efficient."
