AG Kilgore opines on application of FOIA to party caucuses of legislators

This report ("Kilgore opinion letter leaves issue of closed caucus meetings hazy," 1/7/2004) in the Roanoke paper and this report ("Kilgore offers opinion on caucus meetings," 1/6/2004) in the Charlottesville paper describe the limited opinion of Attorney General Kilgore's office on the question of whether open meeting requirements of the Freedom of Information Act applies to party caucuses of legislators.

Maybe under AG Kilgore's FOIA proposals from earlier in the week, the caucuses would have to start making audio or video recordings of their closed sessions.
