Utah Still Needs to Watch Out for GRAMA -- on Thursday's Access Utah

Utah’s Government Records Access and Management Act, or GRAMA, was a hotly-debated issue at last year’s legislative session. News organizations say Utahns still need to pay attention to the issue. The Utah Media Coalition has launched Grama Watch, which, it says, is an effort to keep a public eye on pending legislation that may have an effect on the openness of Utah government.

On Thursday’s Access Utah, Lee Austin talks with former reporter and editor and current BYU Associate Teaching Professor, Joel Campbell, and Provo Daily Herald Editor, Randy Wright.  More information at utahsright.com/grama
