Does your governor’s office make e-mails available?

We’re working with John Wasburn, the blogger that Texas governor Rick Perry wishes he had never heard of, on a Sunshine Blogger Project.

The object of the project is to find out which of the 50 American governors are able to make copies of e-mails available to the public for inspection under their state’s open records laws.

We’re asking bloggers who cover state-level politics to send in a request in their state. The request will ask for copies of e-mails from a 4-day period. See details.)

So far, bloggers in Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Virginia are participating. Would you like to? E-mail us for details.

In states, there are your lefty bloggers and your righty bloggers. In states where the governor is a Republican, we suggest that a lefty blogger make the request, and vice versa.
