Public record plan sees light in Sunshine Week

A Michigan House panel on Tuesday advanced bipartisan legislation that would open up the Legislature and governor’s office to some — but not all — public records requests.

Moss testified Tuesday in support of a separate transparency proposal before the Senate Oversight Committee that would amend the Michigan Constitution to ensure all meetings of publicly funded university boards are open to the public, not just “formal” gatherings.

University board members have faced scrutiny — and lawsuits — for discussing important issues behind closed doors following a 1999 Michigan Supreme Court decision in a case involving a presidential search.
