FB Star: District Claims It Will Comply With Texas AG Order To Release Documents Lawfully Requested (So far none have been turned over)

"Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s assistant, Bob Davis, issued an opinion to the district via FBISD’s attorney David Feldman.

The letter to Feldman from Davis says the district must release all information requested, with the exception of e-mails from the public who object to this information being released. However, the opinion goes on to say, that withholding e-mail addresses from vendors who seek a contract with the governmental body or a person who has a contractual relationship with the governmental body must be released."

"...Fort Bend Independent School District officials say they will comply with the Texas Attorney General’s opinion that said the district could not withhold information on private citizens serving on the Feasibility Committee for the proposed Global Science and Technology Center..." FB Star report
