Gov. Leader said he considered the hills "among the most important pieces of legislation produced during my administration-" One of the bills forbids secret, or star-chamber, operations at every level of state government. It requires official action to be taken in public meetings. The other opens to the public or its representatives the records of public agencies. The open meetings bill applies to city and county governments, school boards, state and local authorities, and all other agencies not specifically restricted by' law in this respect. This restricted group includes grand juries, police and tax agencies. ?nd some spe- ial investigative commissions. Uncisr Pennsylvania's new laws, due notice will be made to the public, starting Sept. 1. concerning the time and place of governmental meetings. Closed executive meetings still will be permitted, but NO OFFICIAL ACTION, such as passage of an ordinance, awarding of a contract, or hiring or firing of personnel will be permitted, except in open meetings.

On the other hand, the Te*as Legislature in effect told state, county and city officials that it is all right to hold secret meetings dealing with public business. It passed only one of several bills designed to break down the closed door policy followed by some governing boards. The one nteasure passed provides specifically that newsmen reporting all types of party political conventions from tl.e precinct level up from now on have the right to be there. In many instances last summer, reporters were barred from conventions. Several other measures bearing on (he general question of examination, publication or study of public records did survive, however. The other public information bills passed were: The party convention bill by Sen. Crawford Martin of Hillsboro. requiring publication of annual financial statements by such agencies as school districts and soil conservation districts. SB 269 by Sen. William T. Moore of Bryan, requiring special audits of county records on petition of 30 per cent of the qualified voters. HB 199 by Rep. L. Dewitt Hale of Corpus Christi. stopping payment of state funds to school districts which fail to furnish aft. i 0 { their accounts.

They have a ri know how their business is be in. 1 ? ducted. Newspapers as such ca 1 claim the right to be on hand ex that they represent those who have right to know. Misrepresentation and distortion facts are the result of closed door meet ings. Why not hold all public meetings in the open and give the people all the information? You can bet they're going to find out anyway. Tacts forttgn N**t ComiMl RUSSIA TO JOIN B T CHAHU58 M. 'UP Slafl Ce-wMpo""" 1 .
