DELAWARE BILL WOULD OPEN LEG RECORDS: Republican lawmakers today unveiled new legislation to make the General Assembly subject to Delaware's Freedom of Information Act, although the bill carries no penalties for noncompliance.
In other "good government" proposals, G-O-P legislators presented a bill requiring candidates for public office to disclose any delinquencies on taxes or child support obligations, and proposed that live audio webcasts of House proceedings be carried on the General Assembly's Web site.
The bills were unveiled amid heightened scrutiny of legislative ethics and the secrecy with which the General Assembly now operates, including closed-door discussions of budget bills.
