Bill would limit open access to state records - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review A state House bill would allow government officials to refuse people access to public documents if they believe a taxpayer is attempting to 'harass the agency.'Don't let this happen. The harassment of some who push against corruption is just another step to being a hero for others.
The state's existing open records law, considered one of the weakest in the nation, does not allow public officials to deny people access to documents for this reason.
I am with the PA Newspaper Assn. on this, for sure.
