[9:28pm] jokeefe: Personally, it seems like a big change to review. Bill is just the diffs. Would be better to see how it modifies the existing law. [9:29pm] noe: I'm curious as to whether anything will pass this session. [9:29pm] Lulu: The issue of the attorney fees is critical. [9:30pm] noe: Agreed. The fact that you can file a lawsuit and get awarded a decision as well as a reward, but not attorneys fees? [9:30pm] noe: That's a limitation to attorneys who are willing to do pro bono, I think. [9:31pm] jokeefe: Agreed [9:31pm] jokeefe: even looking at the first change: [9:32pm] jokeefe: (n) records, including, but not limited to, blueprints, plans, policies, procedures and schematic drawings, which relate to internal layout and structural elements, security measures, emergency preparedness, threat or vulnerability assessments, or any other records relating to the security or safety of persons or buildings, structures, facilities, utilities, transportation, cyber-security or other infrastructure located within the commonwealth, the disclosure of which, in the reasonable judgment of the record custodian, subject to review by the supervisor of public records under subsection (b) of section 10 of chapter 66, is likely to jeopardize public safety. [9:32pm] jokeefe: it makes me wary [9:33pm] noe: its overly broad and clearly dissuades any agency from actually fulfilling any request [9:34pm] Lulu: Because terrorism [9:34pm] Lulu: 1984 [9:34pm] jokeefe: or Chinese / Russian hackers [9:34pm] Lulu: Well that is actually likely [9:35pm] Lulu: as opposed to terrorism [9:35pm] Kendra joined the chat room. [9:35pm] jokeefe: true [9:35pm] jokeefe: ahoy [9:35pm] Lulu: Who is that in the video?

[9:39pm] aquaticonions was promoted to operator by igel. [9:39pm] Kendra was promoted to operator by igel. [9:39pm] Lulu: JAson is watching the video [9:39pm] jokeefe: do we need more time to review it? [9:39pm] jokeefe: the bill that is [9:40pm] noe: i think its a step in the right direction, with a little cha-cha-ing side to side to hedge bets because derrrr our police state is clearly not smart enough to solve crimes [9:41pm] jokeefe: but it is enough of a right direction? [9:42pm] Lulu: I don’t think so. [9:42pm] jokeefe: would be good to get srevilak’s input [9:42pm] jokeefe: as our FOIA expert [9:42pm] Kendra: maybe table for the future [9:42pm] JFiero: yea [9:42pm] noe: good idea [9:42pm] Kendra: It's his birthday btw [9:43pm] Lulu: TY for mentioning that.
