Public Records and the 2014 Session of the General Assembly

Frayda Bluestein, Associate Dean for Faculty Development at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Government, has posted her thoughts on public records issues discussed during the 2014 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.  The 2014 session paid particular attention to two closely related issues: private information possessed by the government and information possessed by private businesses working for and with government institutions.  Specific topics discussed by Ms. Bluestein in her blog post are:

  • Business Information and the New Nonprofit Economic Development Entity
  • Charter school salary information
  • Trade Secrets and the Mining Commission
  • Personal information of law enforcement personnel
  • Proposed restriction on posting mug shots
  • State Board of Education Tests
  • Local School Schematic Design and Emergency Plans
  • Higher Education Proprietary Information
  • Base Closing Information and Meetings
  • Complaints about agricultural operations
