HARTFORD — The state Appellate Court says police can offer limited information in a news release and still meet the requirements for open government.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s office is refusing to name state employees who have been disciplined for fraudulently applying for welfare.
And the legislature is approving state employee contracts that overrule a state law requiring that personnel files be public information.
Those are some of the events of the past year that the Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information is taking issue with. And it has issued a report to legislature urging it to take action to ensure state government is accountable to the people.
