TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's Commission on Open Government
has completed its recommendations.
One proposal approved Tuesday would allow citizens to see
information state agencies have about them and request corrections.
The panel appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist also called for more
uniform treatment of public records law exemptions for trade
secrets and providing foster and adoptive parents more information
about the children they are taking in.
Crist already has acted on one of the panel's earlier
recommendations by signing an Open Government Bill of Rights nearly
a year ago.
It requires agencies to respond promptly and treat citizens who
seek public records with courtesy, respect and professionalism.
