TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Charlie Crist today announced the launch of two new Web sites that will help Floridians access information about state government and ensure that government’s actions are always transparent and accountable to taxpayers.
The Office of Open Government Web site contains information for state and local government officials, as well as the public, about Florida’s open government and public records laws. The Plain Language Initiative Web site is designed to help state government build stronger relationships with the public through clear communication.
“Government’s business is public service, and we can provide better service more efficiently if our customers understand what we are trying to do,” said Gov. Crist. “The tools available on these new Web sites will help the people of Florida become true participants in the democratic process.”
Gov. Crist encourages state and local officials, as well as consumers, to visit the Web sites. Visit the Office of Open Government at: http://www.flgov.com/og_home, and the Plain Language Initiative Web site at http://www.flgov.com/pl_home .
