Sunspots in Oklahoma

Sunspots in Oklahoma, an online map, pinpoints complaints of Oklahoma governments and other public entities not abiding by the letter or the spirit of the state's sunshine laws.

A YELLOW pin means the issue has been resolved in favor of the public's right and need to know. A RED pin indicates a conflict remains or the decision was contrary to the purposes of the Open Meeting and Records laws.

The map is based on reports to FOI Oklahoma Inc.

Suggestions for improving the map are welcomed. Updates on particular instances also would be appreciated.
