State of Michigan news feeds

In looking for some contact details, I spotted that the State of Michigan have added RSS feeds for a whole host of state news. That’s a nice simple step that will allow those of us interested in state level politics to much more easily keep track.

They’ve also added a blog for the state web team, which looks like it’s mainly aimed at supporting government employees in their use of the web, and one document on the site states that their new content management tools include podcasting support. Hopefully those blogs will become an opportunity to see what’s going on and hopefully input into the future direction of the state’s online services.

Now how best to get them publishing state data and statistics in open, machine-parseable formats…?
