ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s attorney general has relaunched the office’s website containing public information to match lobbying disclosures with specific legislation proposed and passed by state lawmakers.

According to the attorney general’s office, NYOpenGovernment.com now links Joint Commission on Public Ethics filings by lobbyists with specific bills, enabling people to more easily track issues that lobbyists and their clients are advocating for, as well as the results.

The website is intended to promote the public’s right to know about governmental decision-making.

It includes data on campaign financing, lobbying, charities, state contracts, legislator grants, corporate registrations, elected officials and legislation.
