McKenna Plans For Possible Changes To State Laws

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Attorney General Rob McKenna wants to beef up laws dealing with open government, consumer protection and internet safety when the legislature convenes this month.

One of the law changes McKenna's pushing would make it a crime to view child pornography.

He also wants to stop private companies from listing cell phone numbers without permission, and close loopholes in the state's ban on computer spyware.

McKenna joins state auditor brian sonntag in asking for a bill that would require government boards to make audio recordings of their private executive sessions, in case a judge needs to review the tape for any "sunshine" violations.
