FOIA Council to Study David's Legislation to Bring More Transparency to University Donations

Thanks Virginia Mercury for covering my work to bring more transparency to donations made to our public universities.  Our universities rely on the generosity of private donors.  At the same time, financial support conditioned on the acceptance of terms that could affect academic decision making should not be shielded from public view.  I am pleased that the Freedom of Information Act Council has agreed to study my HB2386 that will bring more sunshine to the process.  The bill was introduced in response to the discovery of "problematic gift agreements" made to George Mason University.
