Marion Brechner Citizen Access Project

The Cornell Law Library's InSite current awareness
service (July 17, 2006) reviews the Marion Brechner
Citizen Access Project web site.

The Citizen Access Project was "designed to help citizens
and public officials better understand their rights to govern-
ment information in all 50 states and the federal government."
The project's web site offers a database that allows researchers
to view and compare summaries of access laws by topic.
The database also rates access laws, with 'sunny' being the highest
rank and 'dark' the lowest.
