Idaho attorney general holds workshop on open records, meetings

From the Idaho Statesman

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden will lead the session for public officials, government staff, journalists and other interested citizens.

The free workshop is 6:30 to 9 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Idaho Statesman, 1200 N. Curtis Road. It is sponsored and organized by Idahoans for Openness in Government.

Wasden and his office helped IDOG develop the program, which educates people about Idaho’s open records and public meetings laws through a series of role-playing sketches.

Deputy Attorney General Brian Kane also will participate.

The sessions are recommended by the AG’s Office, the Association of Idaho Cities, the Idaho Association of Counties and the Idaho Press Club.

“We all benefit when the public, the media and government officials are fully aware of the public’s right to access government information and observe the conduct of the public business,” said IDOG President Betsy Russell.

Similar sessions are planned Dec. 12 in Payette and Jan. 9 in Nampa.
