OOR Budget Proposal for FY 2016-17

Earlier this week, Governor Tom Wolf unveiled his budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2016-17. For the Office of Open Records, his proposal includes $2.916 million.

That level of funding will allow the OOR to carry out all of its statutorily mandated duties in an effective and efficient manner, including an increase in training courses across the state, a significant expansion of our successful mediation program, additional hearings in complicated cases, and new outreach efforts such as creating online training resources.

I look forward to testifying before the House Appropriations Committee on Monday, February 22, regarding this proposal. (I’ll also post my testimony to this blog.)
