Advocates for open government cheer bills

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Advocates for more government openness in Oklahoma have some legislative accomplishments to cheer as they kick off their annual Sunshine Week, including passage of a bill to make Highway Patrol dashboard-camera videos open to the public.
 
Freedom of Information (FOI) Oklahoma, a group committed to improving openness in government, met Saturday in Oklahoma City for its annual Sunshine Conference and presented awards to both supporters and perceived enemies of open government.
 
For the second year in a row, Governor Mary Fallin was presented with the group's Black Hole Award for thwarting the free flow of information to the public.
 
A Bartlesville couple, Joel Rabin and Sharon Hurst, were honored with the group's Blackstock Award for successfully filing suit against the Bartlesville Redevelopment Trust Authority over an allegedly improper executive session.
