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

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. (

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 if you are interested in this widget.

You can sign up for a free trial on 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, tracks Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Tennessee, and
Federal legislation, but soon all 50 states will be integrated.
