State Integrity Investigation : Your State’s Report Card
“How does the State Integrity Investigation work?
The State Integrity Investigation is an unprecedented, data-driven analysis of each state’s laws and practices that deter corruption and promote accountability and openness. Experienced journalists graded each state government on its corruption risk using 330 specific measures. The Investigation ranked every state from one to 50. Each state received a report card with letter grades in 14 categories including campaign finance, ethics laws, lobbying regulations, and management of state pension funds.”–From the website.
