Sunshine Week has arrived once again.
No, that's not a weather report. It's the annual week where we make all people aware of their rights under open government. It started in Florida but has spread nationwide.
This year the observance starts on March 16.
Our state has two main "Sunshine Laws," one requiring open meetings and the other requiring open public records.
Through the years, exemptions to these laws, especially public records, have climbed, and it's time for legislators to go back to the original intent, which was to make everything open.
