Amye Bensenhaver, director of the Bluegrass Institute Center for Open Government, speaking tonight in E’town on Kentucky’s sunshine laws
Check here for outstanding coverage by Lexington Herald-Leader reporter John Cheves regarding the Kentucky Attorney General Office’s decision to side with the Bluegrass Institute Center for Open Government’s claim that the House of Representatives cannot close its doors and hide behind claims that a secret discussion about pension reform is somehow justified because leaders called it a caucus meeting and because it would allow politicians to be more “comfortable” while discussing the biggest threat to the commonwealth’s economic stability.
Center director Amye Bensenhaver, a Bluegrass Institute Liberty Award winner, will speak on “Kentucky’s Sunshine Laws: What They Are and What They Should Be” at the Central Kentucky Tea Party meeting tonight at 7 pm at the Nolin RECC, 411 Ring Road in Elizabethtown.
Bensenhaver, who served as assistant attorney general for 25 years, wrote around 2,000 open records and open meetings opinions and is a foremost expert on Kentucky’s Sunshine Laws.
