Statement from House Democratic Leader Sam Singh (D-East Lansing) on the introduction of legislation to expand Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act laws:

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

“It is shameful that Michigan is one of only two states that allow the Governor and legislature to hide behind a veil of secrecy – it is time to shed a light on the back room deals and inner workings of our state government so that politicians can be held accountable when they put special interests ahead of the people they are supposed to serve. While this legislation is a step forward, Democrats know that much more must be done fight corruption and ensure government is worthy of the trust Michiganders put in us.”
