Andy Axel, over at KnoxViews, brought this one to our attention:

A majority of the mayors of the Nashville area's largest cities and counties oppose a plan to loosen the state's open meeting laws, according to an informal Tennessean survey.

The new Mayor of Nashville has this to say, "I don't see any need to make changes to the law," (Mayor Karl) Dean said through a spokeswoman. "We're operating effectively under the rules that currently stand, and we can continue to do so."

Seems clear enough to me, but I haven't heard a peep about this from the County Commission or any of the City Councils whose lobbyists are pushing this in the State Legislature. Brillo? Troy? Anybody?
