FOI Quote of the Day!

In Oklahoma, where the legislature has been considering a really bad bill aimed at closing all identifying information of state employees, came news that the leader of the Senate said he would vote against a bill to keep public employees’ birth dates confidential if the measure returns to the Senate.

The best line of the story is Sen. Coffee’s quote:

“Upon further review, I think I would have changed my vote,” Coffee said. “I think you have to have access to that information and the First Amendment matters, like all of the Constitution. We need to preciously guard that. Are there abuses? Sure. Does that mean you don’t protect the First Amendment and what it stands for? No, I don’t think so.”

Now THAT is music to my ears! Wow!
