A new government investigations board in Wisconsin isn’t releasing the results of most of its inquiries, according to documents provided to The Associated Press.

The AP reported that the state Government Accountability Board, which was created a year ago to investigate government corruption, has only made public the results of 7 out of 29 completed investigations.

Local freedom of information advocates are pushing for a change in the laws governing the board’s documents, as is the board staff.

"It would enhance the public’s confidence in the board and confidence in officials," the board’s ethics division administrator, Jonathan Becker, told the AP.
