Wisconsin FOIC meets with incoming officials

FOIC President Bill Lueders and Co-Vice Presidents Christa Westerberg and April Barker

Representatives of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council (FOIC) are meeting this week with Attorney General-Elect Josh Kaul and a representative of Governor-Elect Tony Evers.

The Council is highlighting cases of successful transparency in Wisconsin government and potential areas for improvement going forward. It is also updating the incoming officials about transparency issues they’re likely to be facing during their first year in office.

The Council representatives are advocating for openness when public officials meet and in sharing documents the public has a right to access.

The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association and Wisconsin Newspaper Association are members of the Wisconsin FOIC.
