Pittsburgh City Council and City Clerk's Office Launch Legislative Information Center - Government TechnologyPittsburgh City Council and the Office of the City Clerk, along with Mayor Ravenstahl, today officially launch InSite, a new Legislative Information Center that provides Internet users with complete access to all city legislation. InSite is available at the city's official Web site.
'The Freedom of Information Act, updated in 1996 to address electronic data, has generated an ever-increasing demand for open access to public records,' said Council President Douglas Shields.
