House to debate secrecy for Capitol security video

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Security surveillance video from the Louisiana Capitol complex would be off-limits to the public, under a bill heading to the full House for debate. 

The House and Governmental Affairs Committee advanced the proposal without objection Wednesday after a heavy rewrite that narrowed its scope. As passed by the Senate, the bill would have exempted all state building security footage from Louisiana's public records law.

Lawmakers on the House committee balked at the broadness. Republican Sen. Sherri Smith Buffington had said her chief concern was about the Capitol.

So, the committee limited the measure to the Capitol and its immediate buildings and grounds. Buffington says she doesn't want people to be able to use surveillance footage to spot vulnerabilities in Capitol security.
