The week of March 15-21, was Sunshine Week, a national event to recognize the importance of access to public information. In Washington, we took the time to celebrate our Public Records Act, created by Citizen’s Initiative 278 in 1972, and designed to “shine a light” on state and local governments. Here at TVW, we have been your lens on state government for 25 years.

Mark your calendars, we will celebrate again next year, March 14-21, 2020.
