From GoLocalProv.com by GoLocalProv News Team:
The Rhode Island branch of the ACLU is asking Attorney General Peter Kilmartin to increase enforcement of the state’s Access to Public Records Act (APRA), saying that from 1999 to June of last year, the Attorney General’s office has only filed lawsuits against public bodies to violate the law six times, or less than four percent of the time violations of the law had been committed.
The ACLU says it was prompted to look into how the law had been enforced by the Attorney General’s office after the General Assembly made sweeping changes to the APRA last June.
