Looking For Sunshine Cover

The League of Women Voters Education Fund has created this Resource Guide to assist Leagues in dealing with this era of increasingly difficult public access to government information. This guide provides an overview of the most significant federal and state laws—those that protect and those that restrict public access to government information. It also suggests various ways that Leagues can become more active in this area, and identifies other national and state organizations involved in these issues.
