Acadiana is the name given to the traditional twenty-two parish Cajun homeland, which in 1971 the Louisiana state legislature officially recognized for its unique Cajun and Acadian heritage (per House Concurrent Resolution No. 496).  Despite the frequent association of Cajuns with swamplands, Acadiana actually consists mainly of prairies, marshes, and wooded river (or bayou) lands.

LA HOUSE RECEIVES OPEN GOVERNMENT AWARD

LA HOUSE RECEIVES OPEN GOVERNMENT AWARD

The Louisiana House of Representative was honored today with the inaugural Melvin Dakin Open Government Award. The award was presented to the House of Representatives for opening the legislative process for “the average citizen.” The award was presented by Common Cause/Louisiana, a statewide organization that actively promotes openness and accountability in government.

In making the presentation in the House Chamber, Common Cause President Dave Zimmerman said, “Common Cause/Louisiana greatly appreciates what the House of Representatives has done to open the legislative process to the average citizen. We recognize the House leadership’s commitment of time, energy and money in this effort. Louisiana is well served by having a House of Representatives committed to open meetings, advanced notice of
committee schedules on the Internet, and live broadcasts of meetings. We are particularly impressed by the digital recording of committee meetings, and by the archiving of those records. We’d like to make special mention of former Speaker Pro Tempore Emile “Peppi” Bruneau, House and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Charles Lancaster, and former speakers Hunt Downer and Charles DeWitt for their steadfastness in assuring that the House remains committed to open government.”

The award is named for LSU Law Professor Melvin Dakin who was a charter member and long-term leader of Common Cause/Louisiana. In all his work, he advocated an open government that represents the interests of all citizens. Professor Dakin recently died at age 93.

The Digital Legislatures  
   

Center for Digital Government

The Digital Legislatures Survey is the first study of its kind that will be used as a bellwether for electronic government and provide models for best practices. In August, all 50-state legislative offices were invited to participate in the survey. Officials responded to a set of 12 questions and ranked their offices according to a four-point scale, providing URLs and background data for final verification and validation. Questions ranged from online access to legislation and elected officials to legislative technology support and operations. A ranking was established based on the multiple-choice criteria selections.
