The Louisiana State Senate began a pilot program through which citizens can communicate their positions on issues facing the state using an online system called Share Your Opinions, launched on May 31. Senator Michael J. “Mike” Michot’s website is the testbed for this project, which currently allows users to vote for or against a small group of bills currently awaiting action, to which links are also provided for the bills’ respective legislative history and status.

This is definitely a good thing. I hope that the word will get out to Louisiana citizens so that they take advantage of it.
