AG pushes for public officials to disclose emails

andy lambertMay 7, 2015

Attorney General Derek Schmidt outlines a proposal for requiring the disclosure of some private emails from public officials when they deal with government business. Schmidt issued a legal opinion last week saying state employees using private accounts or devices are not covered by the records act. He caught some heat for the opinion and said in his letter that the law should be revised. The Kansas Press Association says it plans to work with the A-G and legislators to get that change made.
