Sunshine Week

In a campaign called Sunshine Week, newspapers across the nation are examining the impact of government secrecy on Americans. The Sun will continue to be an advocate for openness in government in the months to come, and we'll be inviting our readers to join us in that cause.

Later this year, The Sun will coordinate a "citizen audit" of government agencies throughout Maryland to test how much real access the public has to government documents about pollution, development and other controversies. For more information on this public service project, watch for announcements in The Sun and on
