Majority of Florida agencies compliant with public records laws

A report by Jennifer Kay of the Associated Press shows a statewide audit of Florida's public records law found that the vast majority of agencies in the state were in compliance with with the law.  The audit was conducted as part of Sunshine Week.  201 agencies were initially contacted.  Of the 148 who responded, 86.5 percent complied with the requests. "That’s a major improvement from audits in past years that showed less than half the agencies complying, said Barbara Petersen, president of the Tallahassee-based First Amendment Foundation."
