Governor Supports Recording Executive Sessions

The Olympian reports the following:

"Gregoire supports having local governments tape-record executive, or closed-door, sessions so judges can review what is said in the event of legal disputes. She is considering whether to request the legislation."

This is good news. We hope the Governor joins the Attorney General and State Auditor in requesting a good bill to require recording of executive sessions.

When we thought the Governor was not doing a good job on open-government issues, we said so. When we think she is doing a good job, we say so.
