Governor’s Daily Schedule To Go Public
Attorneys for Governor Schwarzenegger say he´ll honor a public records request for his appointments calendar and daily schedule.
They´re promising the media-backed California First Amendment Coalition that they´ll compile the records within 35 days.
Coalition officials call it a positive development, saying that previous Governors George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson refused similar requests.
Those governors said releasing such records would compromise their decision-making by limiting who would meet with them.
Schwarzenegger is releasing his records after supporting Proposition 59 — an open government measure that voters passed overwhelmingly November 2nd.
