Some Good News (At Last!)

After a morning of new exemptions, some good news from Arizona:

The state Senate gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a bill that would make public the disciplinary records of state employees.
On a voice vote, the Senate approved House Bill 2159 and amended it to say that employee phone numbers and addresses would remain private.
The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Jonathan Paton, a Tucson Republican, was introduced as part of a series of reforms to Child Protective Services following the deaths of two Tucson children, and the presumed death of a third local child, who were being monitored by the state agency.
