"My name is Maggie. I am a teacher and I will be doing a history lesson on 12/12 about American government, specifically the Judicial branch. I was looking into teaching resources for it and I came across your website. I have got to say, it's great! You have so much great information here and your website layout is so easy to use. I just can't tell you how much I love it!"

"Every year during legislative session, I am reminded how grateful I am for this website and the detail involved. It is a be-all and end-all resource for me and I just wanted to tell you how much you are appreciated for providing it." - Executive Assistant, OK Center for the Advancement of Science

"If you have an interest in your state government and need reliable information fast … in Oklahoma, this is the website to use. This should be one of your 'go to sites'."

"We can tell you that the Oklahoma Reporter and the NABRAUSA use this website to help in data research for articles and investigations. It has saved us thousands of hours work … and we always find the information to be just what the site claims: a link for public information."

"I own a web hosting company and I am the political analyst in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas -- I am very impressed with your site. Apparently my staff has used your site for some time, and as is often the case, I am the last to know about such a resource. Keep up the good work!"
