Senate committee hears testimony on Texas Open Records Law

From The Texas Tribune:

Whether Texas' open records law should address “frivolous and overly burdensome” public information requests was among the topics discussed Monday at a state Senate panel hearing.

During invited and public testimony Monday, the Senate Committee on Open Government also heard testimony on the Texas Public Information Act’s implications for private companies that fulfill state contracts, whether the law applies to communication such as text messages, the security of public records and policies for retaining electronic records.
