Governor Quinn Unveils New Transparency Web Site
“Illinois Sunshine Portal” Will Improve Public Access to State Government Records

CHICAGO – March 12, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today unveiled the Illinois Sunshine Portal, Sunshine.Illinois.gov, a new one-stop shop where the public can review many public records and documents online. The portal, launched just ahead of National Sunshine Week, March 14-20, makes it easier for citizens to find key information about state government and builds on Governor Quinn’s continuing efforts to make Illinois more accountable and transparent.

“We’ve worked to make state government more transparent and responsive to the needs of everyday people,” said Governor Quinn. “With National Sunshine Week starting Monday, it is fitting that we launch the Illinois Sunshine Project to ensure that our state government takes all steps necessary to make information as accessible as possible.”

The Sunshine Project is a first of its kind initiative in Illinois. Under the Project, a variety of information maintained by Illinois agencies under the Governor’s control is available in one location. Through the new site, citizens will be able to access detailed information on state expenditures; track grant awards; review public facilities’ inspection reports, including those for schools, hospitals and nursing homes; and much more.

Governor Quinn launched the Illinois Sunshine Project last March as a part of his fiscal year 2010 budget. New features will be continually added to the Illinois Sunshine Portal moving forward.
