The students at Brigham Young University who recently participated in a public records audit of state and local agencies said they were surprised at the paranoid reactions of government officials they asked for records. There reports tell of questioning that while polite went beyond the law. One student said a clerk “asked at least four times who we were with and why we wanted to see the log. She said we couldn’t see it, even with a written request, without a good reason.” (5/18/05)
