Bill Updating State Open Archives Rules Approved in Committee | Community News

The Senate Committee on State Government on Tuesday approved a bill that will strengthen the state’s open archives law, according to a statement from the Republican Senate Communications Office.

“Pennsylvania’s Right to Know Act is one of the most important tools the public can use to hold their government to account,” said Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33). “This legislation expands the scope of the Open Records Act to correct oversights and make other long-awaited improvements.”
