Nashville (AP) -- State Ethics commissioners, charged with making state government more accountable and ethical, want to meet privately with a representative of the state Attorney General's Office.
The purpose is to discuss open records and open meetings policies.
Commissioners requested an Attorney General opinion in January on whether certain communications among the commissioners, commission staff and commission attorneys are privileged and therefore not available for public inspection.
The State Ethics Commission has since received an opinion, but has refused to reveal what the opinion advises. Commissioners said they want to meet with a member of the Attorney General's staff to ask questions about how to process the opinion.
