Penn. state police take open-records dispute to court

From HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania State Police are going to court to fight a state lawmaker’s open-records request.

State Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-32, South Union Township, has been seeking the number of troopers assigned to the Uniontown station through the state’s right-to-know law since early June. The lawmaker is concerned the trooper level there is too low, and he wants to use the information to push for more police funding.
