A new survey shows that government officials in Tennessee are increasingly violating the state’s open meetings law. The Tennessee Coalition for Open Government conducted a new count of violations in the first 10 months of 2005 and came up with 45, an increase from 39 in 2004 and 31 in 2003. A survey of compliance with the public records last year showed about one-third of the agencies failed to meet the law’s standards. (12/6/05)
