LETTER: The importance of open government in Nevada

I agree with Friday’s editorial on open government and the people’s right to know how their taxes are being used. I disagree with the premise that stronger sanctions against government agency misconduct will make the government more responsive. The bottom line is we will pay for their misconduct through our taxes. Firing the offenders would be a more meaningful approach, but we know that will never happen.
