As part of its Open Government Initiative, the Mackinac Center in July and August hosted four town hall meetings around Michigan to help educate residents about the Freedom of Information and Open Meetings acts. Panelists included representatives from the ACLU of Michigan, the Michigan Press Association, The Center for Michigan/Bridge Magazine and the Michigan Coalition for Open Government.
