The Mississippi Ethics Commission could gain power to settle disputes over requests for public records.
Senators passed the final version of Senate Bill 2507 on Wednesday, sending it to Gov. Phil Bryant.
The bill (http://bit.ly/1gnpmR8 ) says a person can file a complaint with the Ethics Commission if a governing board or agency denies a request to see or copy public records. The entity would have 14 days to respond to the complaint.
