King County Tackles Social Media Rules for Open Gov't

The Local Open Government Blog, put out by the law firm of Foster Pepper which represents local governments in Public Records Act matters, has this piece on how King County is addressing the open-government ramifications of County use of social media like Facebook and Twitter using County resources. The County has established a work group to make recommendations.

Good for King County. (See: We compliment government when it does the right thing.)
