The idea seems to have fizzled on the federal level, but leave it to the states to be laboratories of British-style democracy. Arizona is looking at "question time" for its governor, as the Arizona Capitol Times reports:
A Senate panel has approved legislation to adopt a British tradition of having the head of government take questions from lawmakers on a regular basis.
Under SCR1012, Arizona's governor would be required to answer questions by lawmakers for 30 minutes to an hour every two weeks during the regular legislative session. The "question time," as it's called in the United Kingdom, would be open to the public.
"I don't think that there is really the dynamic conversation that we should be having taking place, in which the executive interacts with the Legislature," said Sen. Jonathan Paton, the measure's sponsor.
