OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Despite recent upgrades in technology, the Oklahoma Legislature a national group has given the state a grade of “D” for how well legislative information is made available to the public.

The nonpartisan, nonprofit group Sunlight Foundation released transparency report cards on Monday for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The group analyzed legislative websites to determine how readily legislative information is publicly available. Factors included completeness, timeliness, ease of electronic access, machine readability, use of commonly owned standards and permanence.

Oklahoma was one of six states to receive a “D.” It was penalized for requiring computer programming language JavaScript to review data, among other things.

Eight states received an “A” grade, while six states received an “F.”
