GRAMA's fine

I read through HB0012 and I don't think it's a good piece of legislation. Having been on a City Council previously, I've personally seen GRAMA (Government Records Access and Management Act) in real world use. I think that the way GRAMA is currently written, is just fine. Currently it provides the proper protection to government with also allowing the public to know what is going on in "their" government. Remember we are supposed to have a government "for the people". The changes suggested by this legislation will, in my opinion, only provide more protection for government officials that may want to hide things from the public.
Some things such as GRAMA are best left the way they are. Would you really want to change your grandma?
