Public records difficult to obtain

Abraham Hyatt and Leslie Griffy of The Tribune in San Luis Obispo, Calif., found that cities throughout that county don't follow state law when it comes to public records requests. "Only one of the county's seven cities supplied both of the public documents that The Tribune sought. Reporters asked for a directory of city employees' work numbers and the city's contract with its police union. City staff and officials who did not provide the documents claimed they were not public records."
