March 11-17, 2018 marks the 13th Sunshine Week celebrating access to public information and June 9, 2018 will mark the 30th birthday of the state Office of Information Practices (OIP).  While OIP can celebrate its many successes over the years to provide access to public records and meetings, it finds itself at a tipping point without sufficient resources to retain its experienced people and keep up with its increasing workload.  This report will shed light on OIP’s historic underfunding, its long struggle to do more with less resources, and the solutions that will help OIP remain neutral and independent for the next 30 years.
