Check out this bill requiring higher standards of automobile fuel efficiency.
HB656


Also, thought you all may be interested in a new site devoted to transparency in government
and one of the best ways to find legislation. (www.statesurge.com)

They also provide my blog a widget (script) that shows the most active bills in any
of their states or at the federal level (free of charge). Contact
Larry@statesurge.com if you are interested in this widget.

You can sign up for a free trial on StateSurge.com and test out this legislative
management system. Its the best service I have seen for tracking legislation.

Apparently, soon much of the information will be open and free to use as a research
tool. Currently, www.StateSurge.com tracks Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Tennessee, and
Federal legislation, but soon all 50 states will be integrated.
