GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Government bodies received only seven citations for holding secret meetings since 2009
Wisconsin's nearly two-thousand state and local government bodies were given only seven citations for holding illegal secret meetings since 2009. And none were cited for illegally withholding public records. That's according to Gannett Wisconsin Media, which also found that 17 other open meeting law violations around the state were cited but later dropped. Gannett said there's no way to track the actual numbers of open meetings and open records violations statewide.
