She's right However, Shapiro couldn't be more wrong if she continues with plans to introduce legislation that will allow cities to negotiate deals in secrecy with private companies. Shapiro is considering a bill that would not require cities to reveal the incentive packages they are offering to prospective companies until the proposals are placed on an agenda for council approval. She is suggesting a 30-day waiting period, which is not much time for citizens to review plans and determine whether they are worthy of support. The open records and open meetings law was created in Texas for the specific purpose of letting the public know how its tax money is being spent Time and time again we have been shown that decisions hashed out in the light of day gain acceptance far more quickly than those reached behind closed doors. There is no evidence indicating significant or widespread loss of business opportunities that would justify allowing closed-door discussions. The public's right to know is still far more important than an individual government's desire to score a big deal.
