But the two sides had little to agree upon.
A subcommittee of the Virginia Freedom of Information Council met Thursday to consider a controversial bill introduced by a state senator from Roanoke that would allow judges to decide whether documents should be open or closed. The bill is designed to increase the availability of everyday documents such as incident reports, which are widely available in most other states.
