From Your Houston News:
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott today opened the 2011 Open Government Conference with a keynote address highlighting the Office of the Attorney General's successful defense of the state's Open Meetings Act and ongoing efforts to foster transparency and openness in government. Attorney General Abbott also introduced conference attendees to the OAG's new Electronic Filing System for open records ruling requests.
"There's perhaps no clearer sign of a healthy democracy than a government that keeps its information and its meetings accessible to the people it serves," Attorney General Abbott said. "Public trust is fostered when citizens can find out what their government is doing. Texas open government laws make that knowledge possible."
