Executive Sessions And Attorney-Client CommunicationsPosted: March 8, 2016
Yesterday I had the honor of appearing before the General Assembly’s Government Administration and Elections committee to testify in opposition to a bill that would have reopened a loophole in the Freedom of Information Act that the legislature closed in 1986. The bill seeks to expand the situations under which a public agency is allowed to go into executive session. The Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information, of which I am the legislative chair, strongly opposes the bill, as does the Freedom of Information Commission and several other organizations.
If anyone wants to see proof of the old adage that the camera adds 10 lbs to a person’s weight, just watch the CT-N footage of my testimony. (It begins at 3:52:25 into the public hearing.)
