NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - A redesigned website for the Tennessee General Assembly features upgrades to bill tracking and video streaming functions.

Republican Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey says the redesign is meant to make state government "more open, more transparent and customer-friendly."

The site last previously redesigned in 2008 has a new theme and layout that is meant to make it easier to find information about lawmakers and legislation. It is also designed to display and stream video to all major mobile devices.

The new site offers users the ability to track as many bills as they want, up from the three-bill limit in the previous version. And the site will also highlight the latest action taken on a piece of legislation to try to clarify an often confusing process.
