Sunshine Week: Forecast in Ohio cloudy

March 11, 2013 2:34 PM

From The Columbus Dispatch:

Today marks the beginning of Sunshine Week, a national initiative to promote government transparency and citizen access to public records and meetings.

Unfortunately, the forecast for openness in Ohio is growing cloudier.

Legislators continue to trot out new proposals to restrict access to information. Governments on all levels continue to shop for reasons to deny records requests. Court rulings continue to go against those seeking to look behind the government curtain.
