Freedom of the press should never be taken for granted. As we celebrate Sunshine Week, a national initiative designed to educate the public about the importance of open government and the dangers of excessive and unnecessary secrecy, this is the opportunity to remind us all that truth-seeking journalism is alive and well and should be celebrated.

Journalists, as the eyes and ears of the public, rely on public access laws to keep you informed, and great reporting begins with government transparency.
