LANSING, MI (WLNS) -Today Michigan lawmakers are discussing body cameras worn by police and what is and is not made available to the public.
Today’s hearing focuses on legislation that would allow certain video to be exempt from Freedom of Information Act requests. For example, the bill bans releasing video from a private place such as a person’s home.
Another instance where a FOIA request would not work is if the video is in connection with an ongoing criminal or internal investigation.
The meeting begins at noon at the House office building. A vote is not scheduled for today.
