FOI: Section 1-202 (Formerly Sec. 1-20e) - Application of freedom of information provisions to agency committee composed entirely of individuals who are not members of the agency.

Section 1-202 (Formerly Sec. 1-20e) - Application of freedom of information provisions to agency committee composed entirely of individuals who are not members of the agency. Any public agency may petition the Freedom of Information Commission before establishing a committee of the public agency which is to be composed entirely of individuals who are not members of the agency, to determine whether such committee may be exempted from the application of any provision of the Freedom of Information Act.  If the commission, in its judgment, finds by reliable, probative and substantial evidence that the public interest in exempting the committee from the application of any such provision clearly outweighs the public interest in applying the provision to the committee, the commission shall issue an order, on appropriate terms, exempting the committee from the application of the provision.  (P.A. 93-195, 2; P.A. 97-47, 7.)
