Ind. Law - "Poor plans for secrecy"
A Fort Wayne Journal Gazette editorial yesterday focused on legislative provisions in two bills pending in the General Assembly (back when bills were pending in the General Assembly --- all of this seems so long ago now ...), a dealing with expungement, and the other with making accident reports secret.
The language on expungement is one of the provisions added to the Governor's sentencing reform bill (SB 561) in the Senate. SB 84 is the bill to delay accident report access, for background start with this ILB entry from Feb. 10, 2011.
The FWJG editorial begins:
Two unrelated attempts by legislators to help Hoosiers are well-meaning, but by preventing public access to clearly public information, they create far bigger problems than they would solve.
