Welcome! Show-Me Sunshine, a collaborative project of the Show-Me Institute, is a government document library which the Institute has amassed over the years not only for our own research, but also for the public’s benefit. Made possible by our donors, the documents herein offer readers a sneak peek into how our government works, how it oftentimes does not work, and, sometimes, how our government can work better. Every document tells a story, and while we have certainly told many of them, we have not told all of them.
This is your government. These are your documents. Please peruse them, search them, and scrutinize them. As former Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.” We hope Show-Me Sunshine assists those purposes.
