“Keys to Open Government” a long-awaited 52-page guide to Tennessee’s open records and open meetings laws, was released in February 2015. (Download a copy of the PDF)<
Written by Frank Gibson, former TPA Public Policy Director, and edited by colleague Deborah Fisher at the Tennessee Coalition for Open Government, “Keys” is a guide we hope will help journalists and citizens use “the law.” The guide was made possible with a grant from the Tennessee Press Association Foundation.
