Transparency organizations raise concerns about Uniform Law Commission’s redaction initiative

Posted on June 17, 2022 by Sarah Brewerton-Palmer

A letter from government transparency organizations urges the Uniform Law Commission to prioritize the public’s right to know when it studies the redaction of personal information from public records.

The June 17 letter was written by Sarah Brewerton-Palmer, legislative chair of the Georgia First Amendment Foundation, and was edited and endorsed by Todd Fettig, the National Freedom of Information Coalition’s executive director. Twenty-four additional government transparency organizations also endorsed the letter, as did Thomas Susman, NFOIC’s Vice President and Open the Government’s steering committee chair.  Read more here.
