Sunshine Week celebrates openness in government--the metaphorical sun shining into the workings of the people's business. 

Every year, the celebrations are tempered by news of public records withheld or meetings held out of view of the media. 

Open Oregon and other groups monitor the state of government transparency in the state. 

Board member Shasta Kearns Moore visits with a look at how well Oregon is living up to commitments to conduct public business in public.
