A (Partial) Victory for Sunshine

Tuesday June 23rd, the Rhode Island House voted on major changes to the Access to Public Records Act. Unfortunately, two amendments stripped important provisions from the Act. You can read about the history of the bill here, the Providence Journal’s editorial endorsement, and an example of how the law helps everyday citizens. Ask your representative to restore the changes to the act by contacting them, and ask Governor Carcieri not to veto the bill this year, by contacting him here.
