Pennsylvania expands public records requirements over Penn State, Temple, Lincoln and Pitt

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Several leading Pennsylvania universities that receive millions of dollars in state aid must start publicly disclosing more records about their finances, employment and operation. That’s according to legislation signed Thursday by Gov. Josh Shapiro. He signed the bill a day after it passed the Senate unanimously. For years, lawmakers have sought to expand public-disclosure requirements over Pennsylvania’s four state-related universities: Pitt, Temple, Lincoln and Penn State. Under the legislation, the universities will be required to publish various pieces of information about their finances, employment and operations. Some of it they already voluntarily produce, such as open meeting minutes from their boards of trustees, enrollment and staff employment figures.
