Each year in the Indiana General Assembly, it seems, there are challenges to the principles that the public's business should be done in public and that public information should be easily accessible.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management's Office of Air Quality has decided to post notices of public hearings exclusively on its website and no longer in the media. In doing so, the agency has made the public's business much more difficult to follow.
INDIANAPOLIS | Government officials who refuse to turn over documents requested by the public can be fined under a law signed Monday by Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Times soon will begin broadcasting Lake County civil court hearings on its website, nwi.com, as part of a pilot project intended to bring courts closer to residents.
To gain and maintain the trust of the public, government must be open and transparent in the way it conducts the public's business. If government officials huddle behind closed doors or refuse to release public records, they won't enjoy the public's trust. And trust is a necessity to govern.
