Bill would make lawmakers’ emails and other documents public

DFL Rep. Paul Thissen has introduced a bill that would make state legislators’ emails, schedules, and other records public information.

Erin Golden at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

In a statement, Thissen said being more open about the Legislature’s operations will build trust among people who don’t believe lawmakers are looking out for “regular people.”

“By opening the Legislature up to the same data practices and open meeting requirements we demand of all other elected officials, we can start rebuilding trust and create better laws too,” he said.
