This is Sunshine Week - a week focused on the importance of a robust free press and government openness and accountability. Now more than ever with full frontal attacks by President Trump on the free press, it is time to fight for our constitution and stop the secrecy.
And Minnesota is not much better. We recently received a D-grade on government openness and accountability. That's why Representative Thissen introduced the Openness and Accountability in Government Act: to stop the behind closed door meetings where well-connected lobbyists have all the power; to shine light on who elected officials are meeting with; and to require that legislators and the general public has enough time to actually read bills before a vote is taken.
Sign the petition today to support the Openness and Accountability in Government Act. Let's empower citizens and restore trust in our democracy.
