I hope they get it right. For whatever it's worth, the cost of the projects performed for the government in the future could go higher based upon needing to archive any nit-pick thing in the name of transparency, worthwhile or (most often) not. You'd hope a question of 'appropriateness' could be posed to govt and let them - the ones the contract is signed with - could do their own investigation without risking proprietary information being published. All for govt transparency, but this law might need to be looked at to protect businesses.

If the law is going to be interpreted as broadly as the paper's position, it should be revised. One of the troubling comments from the paper..."the more the company fights it the more suspicious he is." This is the argument of totalitarians. Would he feel that way if the government wanted into his home...just to look around? No, he would fight that intrusion with all his ability...EVEN if he had nothing to hide. One would think that newspaper person would be the last person to miss this basic concept of our constitution.
