With the help of State Librarian Wiggins, the historical records proposal of releasing medical records after 50 years (the federal HIPPA standard) and other historical records after 75 years (National Archives practice) is before the GAE Committee. As is making public UConn Foundation records. Smith, Claude Albert and Chris VanDeHoef met with the Chairs. Colleen Murphy and Paula Pearlman had a separate meeting with them.

Smith and Mary Schwind testified Tuesday against a plan to make secret pardon applications.

CCFOI and FOIC written testimony will be forward to CCFOI members and the media.

It was generally felt our present Bice Clemow Award covers supportive government officials. There was more discussion on Klau’s proposal to rate legislators on FOI votes, and getting a plan ready for 2015.

Mitch Pearlman and Smith will attend a meeting of the CFOG board members Thursday 2/20 to discuss advancing Comptroller Lembo’s actions of getting government information online.

You undoubtedly surpassed readers’ expected results. Thanks for rendering those useful, trustworthy, revealing as well as unique tips on your topic to Sandra.

  32. Thanks for the useful information on credit repair on your web-site. The thing I would offer as advice to people will be to give up a mentality they will buy at this moment and pay back later. As being a society most people tend to repeat this for many factors. This includes family vacations, furniture, plus items we really want to have. However, you must separate a person’s wants from the needs. When you’re working to fix your credit score you really have to make some trade-offs. For example you possibly can shop online to economize or you can click on second hand suppliers instead of highly-priced department stores to get clothing.

  33. Pretty nice post. I just found your weblog and wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your
    website posts. In any event I’ll be subscribing to your feed
