EAST FALMOUTH – State Representative David Vieira has been appointed to the working group charged with reviewing and evaluating the application of the public records law as it relates to law enforcement.

The group was created as part of the recent public records law reform package signed by Governor Charlie Baker.

The working group will review determinations of the supervisor of records and judicial decisions related to requests for investigatory materials compiled by law enforcement.

Following its review, the working group will issue its findings regarding the public interest in releasing records made and kept by police departments.

A report on the working group’s finding and recommendations will be filed with the Legislature by December 30, 2017.

Vieira is one of four legislators serving on the working group, which will be chaired by Secretary of State William Galvin and include a total of 16 members.
