Committee Approves Adding State-Related Schools to PA Open Records Law
A proposal to fully include Penn State and the other three "state-related" universities under the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law is headed to the House floor following a positive committee vote.
The State Government Committee voted Monday in favor of the bill, which also would pertain to the University of Pittsburgh, Temple University and Lincoln University.
The state-related universities get substantial state funding but aren't state-owned, as are the 14 schools in the State System of Higher Education. A complete rewriting of the Right-to-Know Law that took effect in January 2009 requires the schools to provide limited disclosure, including the salaries of their highest-paid employees.
The current proposal would treat the four schools the same as the state-owned institutions. All Republicans and three of nine Democrats on the committee voted for it.
