Here's an exceptionally spiffy idea; Open Congress, a web page dedicated to transparency in the United States Congress. A little digging shows who's travelling to Oregon thanks to the benificence of corporate interests; Mark Prater, JD 1984 Willamette U., and chief tax counsel of the Senate Committee on Finance, seems to lead the list.

Stumbled across them thanks to WNYC's On The Media, which KOPB runs Monday evening, and which also available by podcast, MP3 download or on-line transcript. Here's the rundown on the interview which lead me to Open Congress.

Sure would be nice if some public-minded Oregon corporation's foundation funded something similar to help us understand where the rubber meets the road in Salem. {/hint}
