The Legislature’s clampdown on open government

Model no longer:

Last month, after closed-door meetings involving leaders of both parties, the Assembly and Senate unveiled new rules of conduct, which majority Republicans passed over nearly unanimous Democratic opposition. The Assembly rules formalized what had been posted guidelines, barring visitors from using “audio or video devices to record, photograph, film, videotape, or in any way depict the proceedings on or about the Assembly floor.”

The Senate also passed new rules for spectators in the gallery and meeting rooms.
