Ryan Taylor Wants Public Information from Industrial Commission

Posted:

A candidate in the north Dakota Agriculture Commission race says he's unhappy with how the Industrial Commission is handling public information.
Ryan Taylor is running for North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner.

Taylor is asking the attorney general for an opinion on whether the Industrial Commission has violated North Dakota's Open Records and Meeting Law.
He says it took a month to receive the 2009 minutes that his office requested from the Commission.
And the 2010-through 2014 minutes still haven't been received. 

(Ryan Taylor / ND Ag Commissioner Candidate) "I believe that when you have the Industrial Commission, which I think is arguably, the most influential Commission of elected officials in North Dakota, especially at this moment in time. When we are in the biggest oil boom our state has ever experienced, ought to have minutes that are available in less than a month."

An Industrial Commission employee says the remaining minutes will be sent throughout the month of April.
Taylor served in the state Senate from 2002-12.
This is Taylor's second statewide run for office. 
He ran against Republican Jack Dalrymple for Governor in 2012.
