The chairman of a Tennessee legislative study committee on open government has introduced two new bills – one that carries the panel’s official recommendations and a second that puts forward only the provisions he personally supports. Sen. Randy McNally’s “scaled-down version” eliminates a provision that would allow up to three officials of a body to meet privately to discuss public business. Current law says a “two or more” officials trigger a public meeting. (1/18/08)
