This month, I want to let you know about a blog that I read several times a week, now and for the past three years. As a political junkie, it has helped me get my fix of news and opinions about legislatures and state politics. It includes links to a bipartisan list of some state blogs as well as some state legislature blogs.
Using the information on the blog, I have been able to research specific state issues as well as read other blogs posted by state legislators throughout the country. It has a wealth of information with many ideas, proposals and policies as well as other informative articles about bills and branches of America’s government.
Here, the Thicket at State Legislatures thrives.
It is a place where questions and debates take root, where introspection, analysis and dialogue flourish. The Thicket is a blog about the state legislative institution and federalism written by and for legislative junkies. Contributors are among the nation’s foremost statehouse observers at the National Conference of State Legislatures.
The Thicket at State Legislatures is part of the mission of State Legislatures magazine and NCSL’s Trust for Representative Democracy. State Legislatures is the national magazine of state government and policy, published 10 times a year by NCSL. The Trust for Representative Democracy is a grassroots campaign to strengthen understanding and support for American democratic institutions.
It’s not often that you’ll read a blog about another blog, but if you are a political junkie like I am, I am sure you will agree reading just some of the hundreds of articles posted here is a worthwhile way to spend a couple of minutes of your day.
Do you know of any other blogs out there on state health IT issues that I might find interesting?
