The state Senate is unveiling a new Web site today that it hopes will get the public more involved in the legislative process.
The site will use many features used by popular social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, and will incorporate what is known as "crowdsourcing."
"We like to think of this as returning government to the people," Hoppin said. "They paid for it. This is citizens first."
The new site will be more interactive than the Senate's former Web site. There will be areas where people can comment on legislation, and where they can link content from individual senators' sites to their Facebook or Twitter pages.
The new Senate Web site is located at http://www.nysenate.gov. Individual senators will get their own sites.
