FederalNewsRadio has been following the development of the Obama administration's open government and transparency initiative.

The federal government used an innovative way of reaching out to include the public in the development of that policy -- the policy development was open and transparent itself.

But... did it work?

A group of open government advocates are asking your opinion in a survey.

The League of Women Voters is one organization that's involved.

Mary Wilson is their national president and explains why they're involved and what they want to know.
