Pre-decisional deliberative information exemptions

The Pennsylvania Office of Open Records has ruled that the school board of the Northhampton Area School District is within its rights to redact budget figures from its 2009-2010 budget because the redacted information is “pre-decisional deliberative information.”

Northampton Area’s budget figures didn’t have to be released, ruling says.

Sometimes it seems as if half the open records/e-mail lawsuits filed have to do with romantic/sexual emails exchanged between colleagues who work for the government and who are exchanging those emails on government computers.

If only they had known about the pre-decisional deliberative information exemption.

    So… you can only see the budget after it’s passed? That’s insane.
