SCA 7: The Open Government Sunshine Amendment
SCA 7 is legislation that would place a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot to allow voters to strengthen the public's right of access to government deliberations and records. SCA 7 would have to pass both the Senate and Assembly by a two-thirds majority before being placed on the ballot. A majority of voters would then have to approve the addition to the state constitution.
