MADISON — A recent ruling by the Wisconsin Supreme Court made securing open government a more expensive — and daunting — proposition for citizens, media and any one else seeking public records.
The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty is urging the Legislature to fix the state’s open records law in order to fix the court’s ruling and guarantee greater transparency.
“Without action, Wisconsin’s public records laws could be rendered toothless,” said Lucas Vebber, WILL’s deputy counsel.
