This week in public records: Florida

The final report issued by the Florida Commission on Open Government Reform recommends how the State of Florida can make its government records more accessible to the public. The report should be read by anyone concerned with open government and the future of public records in Florida. Among the proposed changes in the law, the panel suggests that investigations of complaints filed against professional licensees would become a public record after the case is closed. The Commission proposes enhanced electronic access to government records, lifting the restriction on release of lists of retirees, reducing fees for some public records and opening child abuse and adult mistreatment investigations.
