Your Right To Know: Openness awards cap trying year
Placeholder Image
This past year has seen almost constant threats to the state's openness laws. We've had local law enforcement agencies suppressing driver's license information, a state senator claiming immunity from civil suits to evade the open records law, and attempts to deny public access to records of circuit court cases and university research. All of these threats were met with opposition, and none of these battles has yet been lost.
