Yee honors McKee by putting his name on bill

The CalAware website reports that state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, has amended his SB8 to bring openness to foundations supporting state universities and colleges “The Richard McKee Transparency Act of 2011” to honor the champion of open government who died April 23. McKee was a co-founder and first president of Californians Aware, a non-lawyer whose efforts to bring sunshine to local government were unrivaled in their frequency and success.
