The Florida First Amendment Foundation conducted its third FOI audit, this time looking at the open records performance of 34 state agencies. It found officials generally helpful but often unaware, not only of the law but of who in the agency should be contacted to deal with a records request. Half of the agencies violated at least one of the law’s requirements. The Florida audit was just one of many around the country conducted in conjunction with Sunshine Week. (3/25/08)
