Attorney General's Open Government Summit (July 29, 2015)

Early in his administration, Attorney General Brad D. Schimel promised to make reforming Wisconsin’s outdated Open Government laws a priority and was excited to welcome participants and guests to the 2015 Open Government Summit. The Attorney General's goal for the summit was to provide recommendations to the Wisconsin Legislature that will provide clearer guidance to public officials and those who seek information from government without reducing rights to access.
