Mo. Bill Restores Open-Records Exemptions
JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri lawmakers have sent Gov. Jay Nixon a measure restoring expired exemptions to the state's open-records law.
The House and Senate both gave the bill unanimous approval Friday.
One exemption covered operational guidelines and policies developed by law enforcement, public safety, first response or public health authorities for preventing and responding to terrorism incidents.
Another dealt with security systems and structural plans for property owned or leased by a government agency.
The measure would permanently restore both exemptions, which expired in 2012. Nixon has publicly called for the exemptions to be reinstated.
