Board Retreats, Committees, etc.

It is quite likely that the provisions of LAFOIP, which provide for an exemption from disclosure for records relating to policy options, proposed plans, etc., will apply to much of the material produced for board retreats and committee work. These exemptions would then allow the board to refuse to release the documents.

If, however, the documents do not fit within one of the exemptions in LAFOIP they will have to be released if requested.
