‘You are my Sunshine’

This week is Sunshine Week, that week of the year where journalists, especially in the newspaper business emphasize the importance of freedom of information acts (FOIA) and open government. Sunshine Week is a joint effort of the American Society of News Editors (ASNE) and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP). It's called Sunshine Week because the observation started in Florida by that state's press association in 2003. Florida is, of course, the Sunshine State.

Federal law requires that an MPO be designated for each "urbanized area" hitting that population level.

It’s Citizens United all over again

Last July, I wrote about how disheartened I was that the Supreme Court of the United States refused, on a 5-4 partisan vote, to reconsider one of its worst decisions ever: Citizens United. The original 2010 ruling opened the door for "super" political action committees (Super PACs) to accept unlimited contributions and, in at least some cases, without full disclosure on where that money's coming from.
