Oregon Attorney General issues Government Transparency Report after multi-state study

After six months of town hall meetings around Oregon and receiving written comments, Attorney General John Kroger has issued his Government Transparency Report that summarizes the frustrations many Oregonians have with the state’s public records and meetings laws. The report, which also includes studies of other state laws, concludes that the 2011 Legislature should “address a number of problem areas” that include “excessive fees, lengthy delays and unnecessary exemptions.” In addition, Kroger has placed the 2010 Attorney General’s Public Records and Meetings Manual online for free access to Oregonians.
