wants to change Pennsylvania's open-records law so that government records are presumed to be available to the public and promised to work to with newspaper publishers on the issue if he is re-elected, a newspaper reported.This is excellent news.
"I'd be happy to sit down with all the publishers and hash through that. I agree with that," Rendell said in an interview with the New Era in Lancaster published Thursday. "I think the only thing is the cost and time factor."
Rendell said the Right-to-Know Law also should be broadened to require the Legislature to disclose more information about hundreds of millions of dollars it controls.
"It's an absolute disgrace that nobody knows what's spent in those legislative accounts," Rendell said.
