Pennsylvania Open Records Office busy in 2009

Pennsylvania’s sunshine law underwent a significant upgrade in 2008. The new law took effect on January 1, 2009. Part of the new law required that the state establish the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records.

It’s been a busy year for that new office, with at least two local governments choosing to appeal, rather than obey, its rulings. Most recently, York Township’s board of commissioners decided to appeal a recent ruling.
