The Missourian: Missouri ballot initiative hopes to shine sunlight on lawmakers' records

Some Missouri legislators have long-maintained that as individuals they are exempt from the state’s open records law, known as the Sunshine Law. But a constitutional amendment on November’s ballot hopes to make lawmaker’s adherence with the law a requirement rather than a choice. Amendment 1, more commonly known as “Clean Missouri,” would institute ethics reform across the legislature, including requiring legislative records to be made public.
