You may already be familiar with the wealth of information at the official website of Georgia state government, but did you know your state government has a Web 2.0 presence?

Check out these cool Web 2.0 resources to be an active citizen in Georgia!
Another cool link from my daily Mashable roundup arrived in my “inbox” this morning: http://tweetcongress.org/ .
This resource allows you to see which representatives in Congress are using Twitter to update their constituents about their legislative work. A “Tweetstream” allows you to see the latest updates from all Congress reps who are Tweeting; you can also explore who is tweeting from Congress by state as well as political party. If you use Twitter, this is a great way to keep up with your representatives; if no one is Tweeting from your state like mine, Georgia, then take this opportunity to let your reps know you want more transparent government and would like to have your state represented in the Twittersphere.
