A Tennessee Senate subcommittee recommended a series of changes in the state’s open records law but was unable to reach agreement on tightening the open meetings rules. The proposal creates an open records ombudsman and sets a four day limit for public officials to respond to a records request. It also expands the law to cover circuit courts. (3/7/08)
