The citizens of Wyoming were the beneficiaries one week ago when the Wyoming Senate rejected a bill that would have limited government transparency.
By a 20-9 vote, Senate File 17, a bill brought by Sen. Tara Nethercott (R-Cheyenne), would have allowed cities, towns, counties and school districts to only place public notice information on their own websites.
Unfortunately, much of the discussions seemed focused on how the state’s newspapers would be impacted if those notices were moved online. The issue should never be about saving money, but how to best keep the public informed in a unbiased manner.
