Scaling up our Open Data: Exploring a State Open Data Law

In 2013, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 95, launching the state’s open data initiative. New York was one of the first states to implement open data and several other states and cities have followed suit. While executive orders carry the force of law, they can be rescinded by future administrations. Additionally, while the state has made progress in publishing open data, more is needed.

Along with the audience, we’ll explore what statewide data needs are, the political landscape, and what more can be done to improve the accessibility, availability, and utility of state-level open data. What prevents New York State's open data from achieving the same quality as New York City's? What would access to state data enable us to accomplish? We'll discuss the necessity of statewide housing data for on-the-ground organizing for tenant rights as one example.
