Original Post 5/15
As noted in this article from the Spokesman Review, the Sunshine Committee voted on Tuesday, May 12 to delay any vote on the Public Records Act “exemption” that makes most records of state legislators exempt from the PRA. The article quotes Ramsey Ramerman, the editor of this blog and member of the Sunshine Committee.
The vote was influenced by several factors, including that only 8 of the 13 members were present; and, a concern that some legislative records may have constitutional protections. The matter will be on the Committee’s July agenda.
