Perhaps the web team behind the botched roll out of the Obamacare web site could get some tips from the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
 
Legislative staffers unveiled the completely revamped site this week to rave reviews.
 
Check it out here: http://www.legis.state.pa.us.
 
The previous version of the site dated to 2003, though it had been updated with some new features since then - for instance, the addition of roll call votes in 2007, said Erik Arneson, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi.
 
Among the new features rolled out this week: the ability to sign up for email updates on any bill or committee, an easy way to add committee meetings to your Google calendar, and easy-to-locate financial disclosure statements on all executive nominations. 
 
There's also the "popular pages" section that lets you see what bills have been the most-visited for on the site in the last seven days and last 30 days.
