Nixon seeks to keep Missouri security records closed

Friday, January 4, 2013 | 11:25 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon is urging renewal of exemptions from Missouri's open records law for security systems of government buildings and policies for responding to terrorism.

The exemptions protecting such information from disclosure expired at the end of 2012.

Nixon scheduled news conferences on the topic Friday at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and the Missouri State Highway Patrol General Headquarters in Jefferson City. Law enforcement and public school district officials were scheduled to take part.

One exemption covered operational guidelines and policies developed by law enforcement, public safety agencies and others for preventing and responding to terrorism incidents. The other dealt with security systems and structural plans of property owned or leased by government agencies.
