Media representatives told an open government panel appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist that there are widespread abuses of the state’s records laws, costing the public too much in time and money. They also said the legislature has approved too many exemptions, now somewhere past 1,000. The Commission on Open Government is collecting testimony toward suggesting changes to state law later this year. (2/14/08)
