Bill would amend Oklahoma’s open records act

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (AP) -- The state's Office of Homeland Security would be exempt from parts of Oklahoma's open records law under a bill approved unanimously by the state Senate.

The bill says information received, maintained or generated by the Office of Homeland Security could be kept confidential, with some exceptions. Senator Charles Wyrick says it's necessary to keep company security plans confidential or companies won't provide them to the state.

Exceptions include records related to federal grants, spending of public funds, financial performance or financial administration. Also, information related to travel, pay and the awarding of grants or federal funding to local communities would remain open.

The bill now goes to the state House.
