Open government bill dies in Topeka

By The Herald Staff | 4/30/2014

TOPEKA — A transparency measure being considered by lawmakers won’t see the light of day.

Senate Bill 413, which would have provided for the online broadcast of legislative meetings in certain statehouse committee rooms, has “run out of time” in the 2014 legislative session, according to a tweet from the Wichita Eagle’s Bryan Lowry. The bill will not make it out of the House Federal and State Affairs Committee before the wrap-up session, also known as the veto-session, ends, Lowry said.
