This week Vermont strengthened its open records laws to reimburse the requesting citizen’s legal fees if they win in a denial appeal. This is a small but great win for the transparency movement! There were other minor changes to the law that enhanced transparency as well.
Kentucky’s lawmakers need to follow suit and continue to enhance transparency in Kentucky. For starters they could begin releasing preliminary documents so citizens can see the process behind decision making.
Contact your legislator and tell them you want to talk about transparency!
