First Amendment News
May 7, 2019
“We started the First Amendment Foundation in 1983 to watch over a legislative program to review, and reenact if warranted, each of the hundreds of exemptions to the public records law. Our task quickly expanded to keeping public meetings open and then to helping write the guarantee of access to public records and government meetings that are now part of our state constitution. All the while, we worked with citizens and journalists across the state to help resolve the government sunshine issues they encountered. I suspect our task is never ending, but we’ll hang in there.”  

Pete Weitzel, Director Emeritus, First Amendment Foundation
