Kansas Senate Advances Open Records, Meetings Proposals

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Senate has given first-round approval to two bills designed to make government more transparent.  Senators advanced the bills Thursday. They would limit government fees for producing records and make legislative meetings more accessible.  Under the records bill, agencies would not be able to charge more than 25 cents per page for records.  But the chamber rejected an amendment from Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka to require state agencies to disclose officials' emails about government business on private accounts or networks.  Hensley said that rejecting the amendment was hypocritical, given Republican criticism of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's use of private email for official business.  The other measure would require the Legislature to provide live Internet audio of some committee meetings, starting in 2016.
