PIERRE (AP) -- South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Attorney General Marty Jackley have formed a task force to study the state's open records and open meetings laws.

They say the goal is to ensure "maximum public access to state government business." Jackley says the group will continue work done in the past decade that led to the creation of an open meeting statute that presumes most state government records are public.

Members of the task force range from city, county and state officials to law officers and journalists. They will meet several times this summer and fall and then report back to the governor and attorney general.
