State lawmakers are proposing changes to the way you can access information from the state and local governments.  They say it could help save money during tough budget times.  It would allow governing bodies to post information on a website instead of a local newspaper.

The Advocate is the sister station of WBRZ. Managers there say this is not the right move for now. They say Louisiana ranks near the bottom in census reports for internet access. They say using a newspaper allows for better transparency.

Many people News 2 spoke with agree.  Some said they understand that more and more people are getting their news electronically, but they still want the information in the daily paper.
