Abstract

The Negotiated Rulemaking Act can provide guidance to press and law enforcement representatives to help them come to a negotiated agreement on handling the grey areas of open records law that have long frustrated employees of both. A negotiated protocol could be extremely helpful in easing the tensions inherent in this daily effort, and it could even serve to better inform and protect the public interest.
