Sunshine Week, an annual nationwide celebration of open
government and political transparency is here again, and we're proud that this year we are incredibly close to fixing our broken
freedom of information law in Massachusetts!
A committee is currently just weeks away from
reconciling the reform bills passed by the House and the Senate into final
legislation. Once that's done, it will go the Governor for
his signature. We need to keep working right until the end and make sure
this reform strengthens enforcement of the law, limits costs for access to
public information, and ensures responses to requests occur in reasonable time.
Take action for Sunshine Week and tell the
conference committee to make sure Massachusetts has an open records law worth
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Common Cause.
