Coming Sunshine Week: FYI On The New State FOIA Law

Our chapter’s annual Sunshine Week event is back, and this year we’ll be tackling an especially timely issue: The updates to the state’s FOIA law approved earlier this year, and what they mean for journalists and other media professionals when the law goes into effect later this year.

Join us Wednesday, March 18 at 6 p.m. at Kelly’s in downtown Lansing for a panelist discussion featuring experts on the topic. Our panelists are:

– State Rep. Brandon Dillon, D-Grand Rapids, who recently sponsored legislation to expand Michigan’s FOIA law
– East Lansing Clerk Marie Wicks
Jeremy Steele, Michigan Coalition for Open Government
Dirk Milliman of the Michigan Press Association (invited)

RSVP on our Facebook event to let us know you’re coming!
