Clarifying the perfectly clear is to muddle

This move to “clarify” the laws looks like an attempt to close more government records in Tennessee.

State Rep. Vince Dean said it ‘makes sense’ that any e-mail sent on a public computer would be a public record. But the law itself does not address the issues that have muddied its interpretation.

‘Any time you’ve got a law that’s in place, it needs to be clear enough the average citizen can pick it up and read it,’ Dean said.

We need to clarify that an e-mail sent from a taxpayer purchased computer is a public record?
