Democracy needs 'sunshine,' journalists

"Sunshine Week" is March 11-17 and during it journalists nationwide examine the state of our ability to access open records and celebrate the freedom we have due to this access. In Wisconsin, the laws which are most important to the "people's right to know" include the Wisconsin Open Records Law and the Wisconsin Open Meetings Law. These two laws, and court cases about them, help determine what records government must make available to citizens and what portions of public meetings must be open to citizens.
