Guest Column: Sunshine Week brings advance in transparency efforts
JACKSON – Well, that’s more like it.
The state legislature this week passed two very important bills on to Gov. Phil Bryant for his consideration.
Both S.B. 2507 and H.B. 928 make significant needed improvements to Mississippi’s so-called “Sunshine laws.” They’re known that way here and across the nation because of their purpose to increase transparency in government.
The Senate bill gives limited power to the Mississippi Ethics Commission to enforce the state Public Records Act; the House measure puts in place limitations on what can be charged for labor and materials while accessing public records at your local courthouse, city hall or elsewhere.
