Florida’s public records and open meeting laws are a valuable tool for journalists. Public records requests can yield crucial information for a news story. But the rules don’t just help journalists- they’re designed to promote civic engagement and help the public get involved in government.

This week 90.7 News is taking a closer look at the state’s government in the sunshine laws. 

First Amendment Foundation president Barbara Petersen joins Intersection along with 90.7’s Abe Aboraya and Orlando Sentinel opinions editor Paul Owens, to discuss the laws around access to information in Florida.
