FOG hosts social media #SunshineHaiku contest.

To raise awareness about open government, we are hosting a haiku contest on twitter and Facebook. To enter, simply write a haiku about sunshine in New Mexico (or the lack thereof) and post it using the hashtag #SunshineHaiku for your chance to win up to $50.

Opinion: Legislative session casts shadow on Sunshine Week

"Closed-door budget talks and a failed effort to create a transparent ethics commission largely shaded the recent New Mexico Legislative session from sunlight, but 2016 did see two incremental victories for transparency."

Editorial: Little progress to report this Sunshine Week

"In New Mexico, the struggle for open and transparent government has come in fits and starts, when it has come at all. Entrenched powers in the state Legislature are often openly hostile to the concept of transparency."
