Rep. Murphey Highlights Open Records Reform Legislation

OKLAHOMA CAPITOL -- State Rep. Jason Murphey, R-Guthrie, posted a great update on his committee's work last week. Murphey, who chairs the House Government Modernization Committee, mentions an important reform to the state's open records law. 

Right now, if a government agency refuses to fulfill an open records request the only remedy is for the person requesting the records to hire an attorney, go to court and sue the agency. 

Last Thursday, the deadline for House bills to be heard in House committees, Murphey's committee passed legislation to address this problem.
