Lawmakers seek to hide Capitol surveillance video

Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Lawmakers want to make secret the security surveillance video from the Louisiana Capitol complex.

Senators on Sunday passed the final version of a bill to exempt the video from the public records law. A 32-1 vote sent the measure to Gov. Bobby Jindal for consideration.

Republican Sen. Sherri Buffington, of Keithville, says she doesn't want people to use surveillance footage from the Capitol to spot vulnerabilities in the building's security.

When the Senate first passed it, the bill would have exempted all state building security footage from Louisiana's public records law, including thousands of facilities across the state.

Senators agreed to a House rewrite that limited the measure to the Capitol and its immediate buildings, grounds and parking areas.
