Speaking on the Status of Open Records Laws in Wisconsin:

Attorney Robert Dreps, Godfrey & Kahn’s Madison Office and a Member of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council and Ernest-Ulrich Franzen Associate Editorial Page Editor, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

From the failed attempt last July to vastly limit records that are subject to open records laws in Wisconsin through an amendment to the budget bill to the state Public Records Board’s recently backtracked expanded definition of transitory records, this continues to be a hot button issue. The topic is intended to encourage discussion; come prepared with questions!
