AG McKenna: R-71 case helps keep government accountable to people

AG McKenna: R-71 case helps keep government accountable to people

(AGO, Open Government) Permanent link

 Attorney General McKenna's guest column about election transparency appears in today's Seattle Times:

SHOULD average people maintain the right to double-check the work of elected officials and other individuals seeking to influence state law, or should lawmaking on critical issues, from taxes to marriage rights and beyond, be conducted in secret? That's at the heart of an issue before the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday.

Read the full column on the Seattle Times opinion page. For the opposing viewpoint, read Referendum 71 case has implications for future free speech. And if you're itching for more information about the R-71 case, the Secretary of State has uploaded all of the legal documents -- hundreds and hundreds of pages -- on a special Web page. If you start reading now, you'll be finished just in time for Justice Stevens' replacement's retirement party.
