CUCFA Supports SB 1696 – the public’s right to know should not be contracted away

On March 24th, CUCFA delivered the following letter to Senator Corbett, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, in support of SB 1696 (Yee):

Dear Senator Corbett:

The Council of UC Faculty Associations supports SB 1696 (Yee) as introduced February 22, 2008. This bill would prevent public institutions, including the University of California, from avoiding California Public Records Act disclosure requirements by signing the public’s right to information away in contracts between said agency and a third party. We view this as a good step in increasing transparency in University operations.

Respectfully yours,

Joe Kiskis
Vice President—External Relations
