WHEREAS, The Texas Open Records Act governs the ownership of and access to public records; and

WHEREAS, Attorney General's Opinion JM 1013 states that current law on these issues is clear and satisfactory; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That the Texas Library Association opposes the effort to alter existing statutes as embodied in HB 2758.
