Bill To Extend Records Transparency To Legislature Fizzles

(Salem, OR)  --  A bill that would have extended transparency to the state legislative process appears to be dead for the current session.  Its sponsor, GOP Representative Julie Parrish of West Linn, says the measure has little chance of moving forward.  The bill would also have imposed deadlines and fee limits on government responses to records requests.  House Democratic leader, Representative Val Hoyle, told the "Portland Tribune" that Parrish's bill stalled because of opposition from city and county governments, who complained that deadlines and changes to fees in the bill would have been too costly.
