Completely agree with Rod Miller's point in "Rod Miller: Government Secrets vs. The Wyoming Public Records Act" opinion.
For any legislation, including the constitution and bill of rights, to be effective the legislators MUST include consequences for those who violate the law. For example, why can people violate 2nd amendment rights without any penalty? "Infringers" should be fined/jailed/ejected, which would actually reduce the number of people willing to attack our bill of rights in general.
The Wyoming Public Records Act should have consequences defined for government personnel withholding information from citizens. Otherwise, it becomes a documented platitude, like "we should all try to get along." That's not legislation, that's a notion. It effectively let's politicians announce they've done something, with the something ever working.
We are suffering, as a nation, from weak/pointless legislation that we've been collecting in our political junk drawer for decades, and its causing and endless amount of court cases (at a minimum) and allowing bad actors in our government to use the union-protected positions as employees to produce a very definite kind of tyranny.
Thanks, Rod, for bringing up this very important point.
