We believe that online video is an important and growing medium for engaging with our government at every level: state, city, local, and others. Unfortunately, state legislatures generally not make video of their proceedings (e.g., legislative actions like votes and committee hearings) available in ways that meet the community-generated Principles of Open Government Data.

Editorial note: Wisconsin does fairly well in making video regarding state legislation available on their site Wisconsin Eye, although unfortunately the videos are published in the closed Windows Media format. While their site's overall design compares favorably with those of the other four state legislatures in this beta version of OpenGovernment, the Wisconsin legislature still does not appear to make their video accessible in ways that comply with the community-generated Principles of Open Gov Data.

In the future, our goal is to aggregate useful video about every bill, issue, and member of state government here on OpenGovernment, all freely-licensed and available in open standards, to share & remix -- see how you can help.

Until video of state government is liberated by its primary source, we're using the free and open-source Miro Community software to create a crowdsourced hub of publicly-available video content for branches of state government.
