Short description: 
OPEN MEET-FOI-DISCLOSURE-BDS                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Open Meetings Act and the Freedom of Information  Act.      
   Includes within the Acts' provisions all municipal convention or civic      
   center  boards,  local  tourism  boards  and  councils,  and  economic      
   development  boards as "public bodies".  Further amends the Freedom of      
   Information Act to provide that the Act's exemptions are in derogation      
   of the  disclosure  requirement  and  that  the  exemptions   must  be      
   strictly   construed   because   of  the  strong  interest  in  public      
   disclosure.  Provides that a public body may require  written  records      
   requests  (now  mandated).  Provides the copying costs may not include      
   labor costs. Effective immediately.
