The only restrictions on public records are any that includes names of individuals as mandated the federal privacy act of 1974. That includes criminal and court records.

As for legislation and records they are all open and public, even any laws under consideration or debate should allow public scrutiny before finalization has been completed. Once a law is completed its takes another law to undo the errors in the preceding law, a waste of time, money, and injustice to citizens.

Open records and open discussion and interaction with representative before, during, and voting on bills or laws is our right and their duty to serving the people of this state or cities or federal government.

The state does not have the right to impose restriction on law for government agency including the police officers, their supervisors and their service records. Make intensification an illegal shield to protect government corruption. Secrecy is not a right of local or state government.
