Tennessee’s Senate passed a public records bill that would give records custodians five days to respond to public information requests. It would also create an open records ombudsman at the state level and drop the current requirements that only residents of the state can make a records request. The vote was 30-0. The House is considering separate, more restrictive legislation. (5/2/08)
