Nevada coalition, one of NFOIC’s newest members, is applauded for advocacy

The Nevada Press Association is applauding the efforts of the Nevada Open Government Coalition, one of the newest members of the National Freedom of Information Coalition.

The Nevada Open Government Coalition “had a significant impact” in the 2021 session of the Nevada Legislature. The coalition and the press association advocated for amendments that removed a Public Records Act exemption in certain environmental policy proceedings, and that requires the Attorney General to issue a report when law enforcement agencies are investigated for civil rights violations.
