You should soon be able to, once again, find the telephone number of your State Representative or Senator on the Web. The House has moved to correct a law that prohibited such postings. State lawmakers say it was simply a mistake made in an effort to keep the personal information of law officers and judges off the Internet. The bill approved in the regular session, though, cast a wide net. It kept the phone numbers and home addresses of lawmakers off the Internet as well. The fix proposed by Representative Bryan Pratt of Blue Springs would restrict information on public officials in law enforcement while allowing the basics for state legislators. Pratt tells members their information would be displayed as customary, while information that could be used against the police or the courts would be kept off the Web. The House approves the bill and sends it and another bill approved earlier this year that needs correction on to the Senate. It tackles anti-abortion legislation.
