LANSING – Michigan Attorney Dana Nessel praised the commitment to and support for transparency in state government announced today by Governor Gretchen Whitmer at the Michigan Press Association’s annual meeting, saying:

“Our residents should be able to count on their state government to be open, accessible, accountable and transparent.  The people’s business should never be conducted behind closed doors and we should do everything in our power to respond quickly, efficiently and thoroughly to every Freedom of Information request we get.  I strongly support the Governor’s directive and will immediately designate a transparency liaison for the Department of Attorney General to ensure we are doing everything we can to be efficient and transparent in our work on behalf of the people of Michigan.”
