Ashley Landess quoted:

The S.C. Policy Council has had some trouble getting open-records requests filled by some lawmakers, especially when the requests are about budgetary issues, said Ashley Landess, president of the group, a think-tank that loudly advocates for a smaller, more transparent S.C. government.

N.C. lawmakers have refrained thus far from returning to session to override Perdue’s veto, and we hope they will allow it to stand. And while at least some lawmakers in South Carolina appear to be operating with a spirit of openness on this particular issue, Landess is correct that in many areas, much work remains to be done.

“It shouldn’t come to a FOIA [formal records request] as often as it does,” Landess said. “Most of this stuff should be available online, period.”
