Proposal would exempt Maine governor’s “working papers” from Freedom of Access Act

From Bangor Daily News:

AUGUSTA, Maine — Members of the state’s right-to-know advisory committee on Thursday approved a proposal from the governor’s office that would exempt all of his “working papers” from the Freedom of Access Act, perhaps until the end of each legislative session.


“This runs completely contrary to what the governor has said about transparency,” said Judy Meyer, managing editor of the Lewiston Sun Journal and co-chairman of the right-to-know committee. “It’s hypocritical.”
