A bill keeping the government from entering into confidential settlements reached the governor’s desk.
Senate Bill 59, which prohibits the state or a political subdivision from including a nondisclosure or confidentiality agreement in a settlement, passed the House State Affairs committee on a 7-4 vote and the House on a 54-9 vote, before being concurred to by the Senate on a 33-1 vote.
“(SB 59) helps protect the public’s right to know how taxpayer dollars are being spent,” Rep. Nancy Rasmussen said, adding that the bill “promotes government transparency.”
“This bill is balanced and reasonable.”
