South Dakota’s legislature will consider conflicting open records reform approaches, one offered by Republican House and Senate leaders that expands the definition of records covered by the law, the other by a Democratic state senator whose bill creates a presumption that all records are public unless exempted by the legislature. The governor has said he would veto that bill. And the Republican sponsors say their bill would result in just as many open records. (1/25/08)
