Two Republican New Jersey lawmakers want to pull back the curtain on the state’s public records law by removing some provisions that exempt legislators.

Assemblyman John Amodeo and Assemblyman-elect Chris Brown plan to introduce in January a bill to allow the decade-old Open Public Records Act, known as OPRA, to apply to communications between legislators and other governmental agencies.
