FOIA bills target swifter Michigan government transparency

From Livingston Daily:

Charges for public documents under the state Freedom of Information Act would be reduced — and in some cases waived — if government units violate the law under legislation proposed in Lansing.
The FOIA ensures access to public documents, and making a request under the law is the process by which members of the general public as well as reporters can gain access to government information.
House Bill 5879 would prohibit government units from charging more than 10 cents per page of requested documents or charging to view documents on-site.
