Oregon prides itself on being an open-government state, with public information easily obtained by the public.  Journalists can and will tell you that the reality is not quite so transparent. 

But the state now has a Public Records Advocate and a Public Records Advisory Council; PRAC just released results of its first-ever survey of state and local governments about their public records requests and practices. 

The response rate was high, but responses were not mandated by law.  Public Records Advocate Ginger McCall returns to talk about the survey findings and other developments in Oregon public records.
