   reports, inspection reports, and studies.  Provides that the exemption      
   from  inspection  and copying for course or research materials used by      
   faculty does not include information  produced  or  prepared  under  a      
   State  contract  and  information  that may be used to support a State      
   policy or regulatory decision.
