! SB 5088 Proposes "Search Fees" For Public Records !

If you care about open government, you absolutely must contact your state Senator and ask him or her to oppose Senate Bill 5088.

It does not have a hearing yet. Keep checking this link to see if it gets one. I'm guessing it will because so many anti-open government bills are moving through the Legislature this year.

This is a really big deal.
