Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline and several legislators have proposed both a state constitutional amendment on open government and a broadening of open records and meetings laws. Kline worked with the Kansas Press Association in drafting the changes. The amendment would strengthen the public’s access rights and require a two-thirds vote of the legislature to approve an exemption. One of the proposed new laws would create an Office of Public Integrity to enforce the transparency laws. (1/28/05)
