Open Government Amendment

September 10th, 2009 by flanews

One state senator is on a mission to make the state’s business more accessible to the public. State Senator Dan Gelber is proposing a constitutional amendment to give the public better access to budget meetings and make records easier to get. Gelber says some lawmakers are giving the entire legislature a bad rap.

“Tallahassee has created a lot of credibility problems in our state because it simply hasn’t governed itself in the open. What this constitutional amendment will do, it will bring more sunshine into the governance process,” said Gelber.

Gelber hopes to bring the amendment to the House and Senate during the 2010 legislative session.
