ASNE staff | 2/9/2016 ASNE opposes proposed changes to Florida's public records law
Florida House Bill 1021 and Senate Bill 1220 would amend the law to create "permissive" award of attorney's fees after litigation, as opposed to the current "mandatory" award of fees. This means that a plaintiff who goes to court to challenge the denial of a request for public records and wins would no longer be guaranteed to receive a reimbursement of attorney's fees.
ASNE and OpenTheGovernment.org have created questions you can ask federal candidates about their views on open government and transparency.
