Representative Vanderwall introduced the Legislative Open Records Act Wednesday. This bipartisan legislation calls to make the governor and lieutenant governor subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and creates similar disclosure requirement for state representatives and senators. Representative Vanderwall explained his inspiration for the bill, “I’ve been under this since I‘ve started being a county commissioner. I didn’t understand  when I came here that we aren’t that open to folks. I really do believe this is a great opportunity to open up to our communities and let our constituents know that we are really doing a job for them and we are not afraid of what we do.”  The bill package does make accommodations for some records, such as letters to and from people in the district, human resources files, and ongoing legislative investigations or lawsuits.
