State agencies and government officials must be accountable to the people, not themselves.
Kentucky’s public officials should be accountable to the people, not themselves. Kentucky has long had some of the most robust government transparency laws in the nation, but the General Assembly has repeatedly undermined them in recent years by:
- making it more difficult to access public information
- reducing opportunities for public engagement in the lawmaking process
- limiting opportunities for lawmakers to speak on legislation
- weakening disclosure and ethics requirements for public officials
