The winter 2015 edition of the OCOG's Open Government Report is now available. The issue provides an analysis of the 130th General Assembly's efforts on issues of open government and transparency, examines the recently passed execution secrecy law, and also provides an overview of open government issues in Ohio.

OCOG’s resources are limited – less than $65,000 at this writing. It operates based on this small amount of invested funds and pro bono staff and logistical support from the parent Ohio Newspapers Foundation. A single legal battle easily can cost $5,000 or more, and protracted legal disputes are far more expensive. The demand on OCOG’s funds, particularly to support litigation on open government issues, keeps growing.
With that in mind, please consider OCOG as part of your 2015 charitable giving. OCOG is a 501(c)3 organization that accepts tax-deductible contributions.
