Directories Go Up on the Web
Topeka, Kan.-based Government Research Service said it will no longer mail printed copies of its Legislative Hotline Directory, which tracks state legislative information. Instead, interested subscribers should send an e-mail request with the word "hotline" in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the directory free of charge.
In addition, the Minnesota Planning and Environmental Quality Board said it put its Sustainable Development Directory on its Web site. The directory is a "one-stop source for information on innovative efforts by state agencies to improve the economy while restoring the natural environment," the board said.
The directory, billed as the "first on-line directory" of its kind, is intended to showcase the benefits of state agency collaboration. It includes snapshots of programs such as the Minnesota Agriculture Department's Agricultural Land Preservation Program, which offers tax breaks and other incentives to businesses in exchange for preservation efforts. The directory is located at www.mnplan.state.mn.us.
