Testimony to NYC City Council on Improvements to NYC Open Data Law: Intro 1707-2017

Reinvent Albany testified at today’s hearing on improvements to the NYC Open Data Law. Highlights of our testimony include calling for new language that clarifies that the Open Data Law is permanent and does not expire in 2018. We also called for the creation of a “Status of All Public Data Sets” listing of the status of all public datasets, which include when they will be published and whether they are complying with new requirements for data dictionaries, and standardized addresses.
