State of Tennessee tries to keep records a secret

Clint Brewer is following the effort by the State of Tennessee to keep secret records related to tax credit program.

So-called economic development is now a major reason for State Government secrecy. this has GOT to STOP. This is an open invitation to bribery.

“In order to promote the type of open and frank discussions needed to formulate effective tax policies for the TNInvestco program, as well as to ensure the proper administration and execution of those policies, I am of the opinion that disclosure of the withheld documents would not be in the State’s best interests,” Farr states in his affidavit.

The TNInvestco program and the related law have already been the source of controversy and criticism.
