Abe Scarr, director of ConnPIRG (Public Information Research Group) Education Fund, a non-profit that advocates for greater public information, said the initiative would help Connecticut rejoin the ranks of America’s most governmentally transparent states. Recently, Connecticut has fallen behind by failing to utilize the latest technology to aggregate and share data, he added.

“This can allow us to hold our elected officials and state agencies accountable for working on behalf of the public,” Scarr said. “It can build confidence in the state government because we know we can hold it accountable and demonstrate when it’s responding and doing its job well.
