Nonprofit shouldn't always mean non-disclosure
Earlier this year, Gov. Henry McMaster signed legislation that gave the public swifter, easier, less costly access to public records. It was and remains a significant step in the right direction in what we all should hope is a path toward greater transparency among elected and appointed officials who expend taxpayer dollars and are (or should be) accountable to the public they serve.
PAPR is dedicated to shining a light on the actions of South Carolina public officials and agencies. Our mission is to promote public access to public records, as well as protect and strengthen the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act and other public disclosure laws that enable citizens to fully exercise their right to know how their government works on their behalf.
