Most New York agencies seem to have pretty much ignored a state law that requires them to keep, and make available to the public, a list of the records they keep. Two legislators said in a report that only 36 of 59 agencies they surveyed had responded and that the records lists that were produced were incomplete. The governor’s office said the state provides citizens more information than ever before and the legislators might consider subjecting themselves to the Freedom of Information Law. (9/1/05)
