SC representative sponsors FOI amendment expanding exemptions for law enforcement supplying

From Summerville Patch:

Raising the hackles of watchdogs throughout the state, Rep. Chris Murphy of Summerville has proposed amendments to the state's Freedom of Information Act statute "to protect the integrity of the criminal trial process" and to bring it in line with federal and neighboring state laws.

The amendment, concerned primarily with law enforcement, was introduced Feb. 7 and currently sits in the House judiciary committee. The original law was passed in 1976.
