OKLAHOMA CITY—While state leaders are attempting to get good grades in the classroom, the Oklahoma State Legislature has received a less than stellar score.

A non-partisan group has listed Oklahoma as a state where it is difficult for citizens to be informed about legislative actions.

The Sunlight Foundation gave Oklahoma a “D” on its report card for public information.

The group says there are issues like electronic access, timeliness and requiring a certain computer software to access records.
