Opinion from Elko Daily Free Press:

The Nevada Legislature this session has an opportunity to make some welcome and substantial improvements to open government in this state, and there’s a good chance it will.

At the same time, I’m calling on two other important components of open government — the press and the public — to do their part to step up the quality of discourse on legislation and policy.

This Sunshine Week (March 10-16), when the press turns a spotlight on governments and their efforts to operate transparently, finds Nevada lawmakers considering a bill that would help ensure the Legislature itself is functioning openly.
