New South Dakota Open Government Task Force created

From The Daily Republic:

PIERRE — Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Attorney General Marty Jackley announced the formation of an Open Government Task Force that will study open-record and open-meeting laws in South Dakota to ensure maximum public access to state government business.

“The workings of government should be as transparent as practicable,” Daugaard said. “Unless there is a compelling reason otherwise, I believe government information should be open and easily accessible.”

The task force includes media; city, county and state officials; representatives of various organizations; law enforcement; prosecutors and others.
