Shhhh! It’s a secret, exempt from the FOIA

The Blogster doesn’t like little, or big, or any kind of assaults on the flow of information from your taxpayer-supported government. Here’s a nonpartisan analysis of section 181 of a budget-related bill for the Dpt of Economic and Community Development:

The exemption applies if disclosing the records could harm the financial interests of the state or the entity requesting assistance.”
