NFOIC’s State FOIA Friday for July 6, 2012

A few state FOIA and local open government news items selected from many of interest that we might or might not have drawn attention to earlier in the week:

Reverse surveillance: ACLU-NJ’s police tape app lets you secretly record any video interactions with cops


Fair Lawn Council opposes changes to Open Public Records Act


The governing body opposed revisions to the Open Public Records Act (OPRA) and the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) over claims the legislation would make government "less effective."

An open government activist, however, contends that the borough has raised "non-issues" and "red herrings" in order to mislead the public.
