Missouri Press Association seeks veto of records bill

From The Kansas City Star:

COLUMBIA — The Missouri Press Association has announced its opposition to a measure that would allow people convicted of certain crimes to keep those records private under particular circumstances.

Director Doug Crews said the organization has asked Gov. Jay Nixon to veto the measure because it would close records the group considers important when employers and the public need to learn about someone’s background. Nixon has until mid-July to complete action on bills passed during this year’s legislative session.
