It's Sunshine Week, where media outfits are discussing public access to meetings and documents. Wyoming has never been a leader in this area, but a new law could change things. Lawmakers passed an Open Records law this year that requires entities to meet records requests in 30 days. 

A state-funded ombudsman will make sure requests are met. Cheyenne Attorney Bruce Moats who handles open meetings and records cases join us to discuss the new law. He tells Bob Beck that it was a long time in coming.
