More and more people are seeking access to public records, both locally and across the state of Texas, the Corpus Christi Caller Times says in a special report on public record requests. Statewide, the increase is 20 percent. And the requests are getting more complicated and controversial. The newspaper also conducted an open records audit of 41 local agencies and found 53 percent complied with the law, although 83 per cent eventually released requested records. (7/24/05)
