Washington Task Force to Consider an Open Records Board
The Washington state attorney general and state auditor launched a task force to consider how to create a publicly-funded open-records board or commission to decide open-records and open-meetings quickly and outside of court. The task force includes representatives from the state legislature, government, unions, lawyers and citizen activists. The task force will craft a recommendation for lawmakers to consider in January.
