"The Community Newspaper Company dispatched a team of more than 100 reporters across the state to test public officials' compliance with the state's law on open records and uncovered widespread violations... Under the direction of the newspaper's projects editor, Chris Szechenyi, each of the reporters asked for a uniform set of public records. The results were then compiled in a spreadsheet and analyzed. In addition, Szechenyi made a separate set of public information requests to ten state agencies and the governor's office."
