Two Arizona lawmakers say they will introduce legislation to open some child welfare records, court proceedings and state employee documents in hopes of putting more transparency and accountability into the actions of Child Protective Services. One bill would open records in the event of the death, or near death, of a child. Another would allow a look at disciplinary records of state employees and a third would open court hearings involving permanent placement of a child or termination of parental rights. (1/17/08).
