Elected officials in Albany County expressed concern that if they talked to the media about an officer-involved shooting that the Local Government Liability Pool might drop the county's coverage.

March 10-16, 2019 was Sunshine Week. The annual event recognizes the importance of access to public information, and the journalists who defend a culture of transparency. Wyoming Public Radio News Director Bob Beck sat down with reporter Tennessee Watson to talk about what's behind the struggle to get elected officials in Albany County to talk about a recent officer-involved shooting.
