Let the new eras begin.

Maybe the earth didn't move but new right to information laws commence today in NSW, 21 years to the day since the introduction of Freedom of Information, and Tasmania where the Ombudsman is the state information commissioner equivalent . No words of welcome in the dailies that I can see, but good luck to those on both sides of the equation looking to move things in the direction of more open and transparent government.  NSW Greens Lee Rhiannon is waiting for the new era to strike home with those within government who are arguing submissions by the NSW Government for federal Infrastructure Australia funding last year have to be guarded from public view.
