Transparency and “Sunshine” in Missouri’s Government

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – It’s easy to say we want government transparency and accountability but it’s more difficult to actually make that happen.

The Missouri Sunshine Coalition’s Jean Buchanan (an editor for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch) discusses the importance of the “Sunshine Law” and the public’s access to government meetings and documents.

Also, Dave Roland from the Freedom Center of Missouri explains why he works to apply the Sunshine Law to law enforcement agencies. ROland answers some of the criticism of his legal work in that area of law.
