ARIZONA - When it comes to providing public records online, Arizona is one of the best in the nation.

A study by several journalism organizations found Arizona to be among the top 15 states in the nation for posting records on the internet.

Fourteen out of 20 types were available, including disciplinary reports on lawyers and doctors.

The study was conducted as a part of Sunshine Week, which begins on Sunday and is meant to highlight the importance of freedom of information and open government.
