Georgia House Honors State's Political Bloggers

For the second year, the Georgia House of Representatives adopted a resolution commending the state's political bloggers for their unique role in promoting openness and transparency in government at every level.

Wednesday, the House passed H.R. 603 honoring Georgia's vibrant political blogging community and designating March 16, 2011 as "Blogger Day at the Capitol."

The first ever "Blogger Day at the Capitol" was conceived a during a live-blog of Crossover Day in 2010.

Since then, we've had bloggers run for office (and win), appear on radio programs, pen opinion columns in newspapers, and appear on television panels offering their views on the most pressing issues facing Georgia and the nation today.

Georgia, I believe, has one of the best political blogging communities in the nation; and once again, the Georgia House has recognized that.
