Bill that allows the municipalities to post legal notices their web site

As you know, I have been against a bill that allows the municipalities to post legal notices their web site.   The purpose of the bill is to allow the various municipalities to save money, by posting legal notices on their web sites, instead of the local newspapers.  This is bad news for the newspapers, as they lose a vital revenue stream.  It is bad news for our citizens, as we continue to limit the public access to critical public information.  I am all for fiscal responsibility, but I have a stronger desire to maintain the transparency between the public and local governments.

It seems the House Judiciary has forgotten the broadband penetration is around 50%, so many of our citizens will not have access to the legal notices, once this bill is passed.

The House Judiciary Committee approved the measure by a vote of 18-6.

Get Involved! Every Voice Counts!
