Lessons learned from fight to save GRAMA

The cover story in the current edition of Quill magazine is about the battle Utah media and open-government advocates launched to beat back an assault on the state’s Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA). The article also tells of the legislation that came out of the public outcry, which for the most part strengthened some of GRAMA’s principles. It illustrates the need of making sure the public understands that records laws are for them, not just for journalists.
