Misguided lawmakers are back with bills to allow local government to stop printing notices.
When the Virginia Coalition for Open Government recently reviewed local government websites, it found that far too many of them hide their budget. Some localities cried foul over their poor grades, but the fact was that one of their most important public documents was not easy to find.
What, then, could possibly make lawmakers like Del. Chris Head, R-Botetourt County, think local governments would do any better with publishing public notices online?
