It’s Sunshine Week!!

This week marks the 5th annual Sunshine Week.  Sunshine Week is about the public’s right to know what its government is doing, and why.  It was created through a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation of Miami and is organized by the American Society of News Editors. The purpose of Sunshine Week is to inform citizens of their right to know about what their government is doing so that they may be more involved in government.

The state of North Carolina strongly believes in transparency and accountability in government.  Below you will find links to websites that provide information on North Carolina government agencies.
