On this edition of Assembly Conversations from Virginia Public Radio, a discussion about open government in Virginia. Without knowledge of what public officials are doing and how they’re doing it, it’s impossible for Virginians to know how well their government is performing. There are laws in place that ensure public access to much of the governing process but not all. And in some cases existing laws have been less than effective. You’ll hear what the General Assembly is doing – and not doing – about making government more transparent on Assembly Conversations.
Here’s host Melinda Wittstock with guests Megan Ryhne with the Virginia Coalition on Open Government, and Ginger Stanley from the Virginia Press Association.
