Pa. state universities continue fight against more transparency

From The Mercury: The four biggest taxpayer-funded universities in Pennsylvania continue to push back against proposed legislation that would give taxpayers to the right to know how hundreds of millions of dollars are spent each year.

Legislation awaiting a vote in the Senate State Government Committee would overhaul several parts of the state’s Open Records Law, the first major rewrite of the law since 2008. As currently written, the bill would make university police forces subject to the law but would not require any additional disclosure from the universities that received a combined $514 million in tax dollars this year.
