Vote NO on Bills S2930/A4505

Amendment to OPRA "brings darkness" to local government transparency

Use this resource to express your opposition to Bills S2930/A4505. This bill would make access to public records more difficult and government less transparent.

The proposed legislation would:

  • Make it harder and potentially costlier to sue for public records
  • Exempt crucial information like public official email and call logs, which are often the backbone of transparency efforts.
  • Broadly allow agencies to deny requests under the guise of preventing "harassment," a term that could be widely misinterpreted to block legitimate inquiries.
