Every other Thursday, our contributor Jonah Chester sits down with Tom Kamenick, president of the Wisconsin Transparency Project, to discuss open government issues. This week on Transparency Talk, they examine a little-known policy that allows members of Wisconsin’s powerful Joint Finance Committee to anonymously object to certain items of business — essentially blocking the measures without taking a formal public vote.
A quick note that this conversation isn’t specific legal advice, so seek an attorney’s assistance if you have difficulty with open records or open government.
