“I guess nothing is ever really private”

So says Colorado legislator Rep. Rosemary Marshall (D), according to the Rocky Mountain News.

Still, Rep. Marshall is trying to make things more private by sponsoring legislation in her state that would exempt from public disclosure any memos, letters and e-mails penned by state legislators, their staff, or any of their favorite lobbyist interlocutors “if they include discussions of a proposed bill.”

The Rocky Mountain News also notes that Rep. Marshall is “embroiled in a legal battle with a Republican website”, Face the State.

I don’t know which is worse…not being able to learn what a lobbyist has to say about a bill while it is still in the proposed stage, or being embroiled in a legal dispute with a website.
