Legislative Transparency Proposed in Tennessee


Bill Hobbs reports that a pair of lawmakers in the Tennessee legislature (one in the Senate, one in the House) have introduced a bill to make subcommittees, committees, and the two houses of the legislature itself subject to the state’s version of the Freedom of Information Act, known as the Open Records Act. Hobbs notes that you can track the progress of the legislation here.

So which member of the House, and which member of the Senate, will introduce similar legislation at the federal level? Congress, of course, is currently exempt from the Freedom of Information Act.
