LA House- Require Jindal's Office to Preserve All Oil Related Documents

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Without debate, the House has sent Gov.
Bobby Jindal legislation that would require him to preserve all
documents his office handles regarding the Deepwater Horizon oil
spill disaster.
Jindal now has to decide whether to sign or veto the measure.
The Jindal administration has gone along with some attempts to
open up governor's office records but has successfully fought bills
letting the public see any documents pertaining to the governor's
"deliberative process" and requiring the preservation of those
documents.
The bill given final approval Friday has language by Sen. Robert
Adley, a Republican from Benton, that requires preservation of
governor's office documents regarding the oil spill for at least 10
years.
