I've Got Issues - Open Government and Transparency

Members of the Kansas Sunshine Coalition and the local media discuss open government and transparency in the State of Kansas on this week's edition of KTWU IGI - I'VE GOT ISSUES, tonight, Thursday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. on KTWU, channel 11.1. Last month on IGI, a discussion of local government reporters and editors was dominated by one particular incident that took place on the final day of the 2019 Kansas legislative session. When protests over Medicaid disrupted that session, all spectators were ordered removed from the proceeding, including media in attendance. That action has caused concern for some that advocate for more open and transparent government in Kansas. IGI is hosted this week by Washburn University Professor and Chair of Political Science, Dr. Bob Beatty. Dr. Beatty's guests include: Ron Keefover, President of the Kansas Sunshine Coalition for Open Government; Doug Anstaett, Executive Director of the Kansas Press Association; and Michael Smith, Professor of Political Science at Emporia State University.
