The Kansas Coalition for Open Government’s website is the go-to free resource in the state for members of the public and the media who have questions about the government’s denial of access to records, meetings, and the courts.
For over 20 years, KCOG (originally founded as the Kansas Sunshine Coalition for Open Government) has published brochures, produced public service announcements, and presented seminars throughout the state for local and state officials promoting government transparency.
