California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said he has advised all state agencies “to give careful attention to the limits on statuary exemptions to the (California Public Records) Act and to seek executive approval from our office before withholding access to public records.” His directive follows a letter from California newspaper publishers asking for more aggressive enforcement of the principles of Proposition 59, approved by voters last fall. It establishes a constitutional right of access. (5/5/05)
