A joint legislative committee on terrorism and homeland security is being told to perhaps close off some information now required to be made public under the state’s sunshine laws. State Homeland Security Advisor Tim Daniel says the federal government has some exceptions to the Freedom of Information Act adopted after September 11th to prevent more terrorist attacks. One example is the nuclear power plant in Central Missouri. He says the exceptions give the feds access to information the state might not be able to get because of Missouri’s statutes. It’s a point committee member Senator Harry Kennedy of St. Louis agrees with, but he says the state must be careful not to go too far. The committee will make its recommendations early in the next legislative session on any changes lawmakers plan to adopt.
