Government Ethics

The Florida Sunshine Laws mandate “open government,” or stipulate that no governmental decisions should be hidden from public view. State employees’ incomes and other personal information are *all* public record, even! The idea is that citizens should be informed about decisions that will affect them.

 

In the wake of recent federal scandals, like the Snowden NSA leak and the “secret courts” regarding the Patriot Act, do you think that there should be United States Sunshine laws? Should we demand such openness in government at the federal level? Argue for, or against Federal Sunshine Laws.
