Pew Center on the States - Stateline.org
Stateline.org was founded in order to help journalists, policy makers and engaged citizens become better informed about innovative public policies.

Television news has virtually abandoned the capitals and newspapers have, in many cases, down sized their state house bureaus or closed them.
