Public Records/Trade Secrets (Watch)

HB 459 (Massullo) deletes several provisions that exempt agency contracts and other trade secrets from public records requirements. 

HB 461 (Massullo) creates a public record exemption for trade secrets and a process by which requested records containing trade secrets could be released to the requestor.  The bill applies to all state agencies, counties and municipalities. (Cook)
