Reacting to the deaths last year of several children in the state’s protective custody system, Arizona legislators are re-thinking what the public should know about children in the state’s protective services system. A committee in the Arizona legislature approved a bill that would exempt the state’s Child Protective Service from the state’s open records law and establish a separate process for releasing records. A separate committee is considering a bill backed by news media groups that expands transparency. (2/25/08)
