OPEN MEET-FOI-TERRORISM                                                    

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Open Meetings Act and the Freedom of Information  Act.      
   Permits  a  public  body  to  hold a closed meeting, without following      
   notice and closed meeting  procedures,  to  consider  the  subject  of      
   homeland  security.   Exempts from inspection and copying requirements      
   (i) a public  body's  records  compiled  for  emergency  and  security      
   procedures,  to  the  extent disclosure would interfere with planning,      
   training, and security, and (ii) plans related  to  the  structure  or      
   operation  of  public  buildings  and power, water, and transportation      
   facilities,  to  the  extent  disclosure  would  compromise   homeland      
   security. Effective immediately.                                            
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        In the Open  Meetings  Act,  replaces  the  concept  of  homeland      
   security  issues with dangers to public safety.  Removes the exemption      
   for such meetings from the Act's  public  notice  and  closed  meeting      
   procedures.   In the Freedom of Information Act, includes transmission      
   and distribution facilities among the facilities for which  plans  are      
   exempt  and  includes  within  the  exemption  vulnerability  and risk      
   assessment plans for the security of public  and  private  facilities.      
   Removes  a  reference  to "homeland" security.  Includes vulnerability      
   and risk assessment plans among a public body's  public  safety  plans      
   that are exempt from inspection and copying requirements.                   
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 4.                                                 
          Deletes reference to:

          Adds reference to:                                                   
          New Act                                                              
        Deletes  everything  after  the  enacting  clause.  Creates   the
