State Treasurer Dale Folwell rebuked lawmakers in his own party Tuesday, saying a new law that shields legislators’ records from the public “reduces confidence in all levels of government.”

Senate Democratic Leader Dan Blue said on social media that his office would “continue to comply with the ‘spirit’ of public records laws and provide transparency to the press and public, regardless of the new laws.”
