Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour signed into law a new public records bill requiring law enforcement agencies to provide a narrative description of any alleged crime, including the name the person charged and the time, date and location of the crime. More detailed information, such as investigative techniques and names of informants, are exempt. A spokesman said the governor considered it a “good compromise.” (4/2/08)
