3/14/11: Utah's Open Records Law
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – Governor Gary Herbert signed legislation on Tuesday that changes Utah's open records law.

Herbert's signature came after implementation was pushed back to July 1, and a special session focusing on revisions is expected in June. Monday, we're talking about the next steps in the debate and about what's happening to open records laws across the country.
