Public records and technology

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

A bill in the Legislature would make it easier for state agencies to provide public records – and would make the process more environmentally friendly too.

SB 1305 would require public bodies that keep records electronically to provide them on CD-ROM or another electronic format upon request.

The bill is sponsored by Sen. Jay Tibshraeny, a Chandler Republican.

It would make the process faster and cheaper with information that is easier to search. And it it makes printing a stack of documents unnecessary.

Public records law must keep up with evolving technology. This bill would help accomplish that.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
