Utah was the only state in the Union to have a freedom of information law directed at its legislature...until its legislature got behind bill HB477. Jason Williams gives attendees at TransparencyCamp 2011 the lightning talk version of what this anti-transparency bill meant for Utah and how the citizens (overwhelmingly!) responded.
