Salt Lake Tribune: GRAMA WATCH Keeps Light on Utah Legislature

A Weber County Forum Tip O' the Hat to the Utah Media Coalition for their continuing efforts to keep our ultra-secretive Utah legislature firmly in check

Encouraging editorial in this morning's Salt Lake Tribune, mirroring last year's editorial, and announcing that for a second year in a row, a coalition of  "[steely-eyed] newspaper editors, together with First Amendment attorneys and legislative lobbyists" (the Utah Media Coalition) will once again implement GRAMA WATCH, a formalized web-based project to "examine [and rate] bills coming out of the Utah Legislature for their effects on open government."  Read up folks:
A Weber County Forum Tip O' the Hat to the Utah Media Coalition for their continuing efforts to keep our ultra-secretive Utah legislature firmly in check.

For our readers' convenience, by the way, we've also added the helpful GRAMA WATCH link to our government toolkit within in our WCF right sidebar.
