Public records bill allows executive sessions for sensitive information technology discussions

Rep. Hudgins’ bill, HB 1417, expands the use of local government executive sessions to include discussing information technology (IT) issues. The bill allows executive sessions to be used for considering information regarding the infrastructure and security of computer and telecomm networks, security and service recovery plans, security assessments, and other information that, if made public, would increase the risks to agency security or IT assets. The law will become effective on July 23, 2017.
