The Kansas attorney general's office will hold five training sessions next month on the state's Open Meetings and Open Records Act. Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Wednesday the sessions will give elected officials, the news media and the public a chance to learn about the requirements of open government laws. The three-hour seminars are scheduled July 16 in Hutchinson; July 17 in Dodge City; July 19 in Iola; and July 20 in Leavenworth and Topeka. Sponsors include the Kansas Sunshine Coalition for Open Government, Kansas Press Association and Kansas Newspaper Foundation. Admission is free, but space is limited and registration is requested at Schmidt's website or by calling 888-428-8436.
