MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' administration scrapped a public website created under his Republican predecessor to track compliance on public records requests, a move criticized in a report issued Monday by a conservative law firm.

Doing away with the website dashboard is one example of a step backward in open record compliance that's occurred between Scott Walker's administration and Evers, the report from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty said. The report accused Evers of slow response times, disorganization and a lack of transparency on open records issues.
