Information whose disclosure can reasonably be expected to have a
significant adverse effect on the physical national defense and
defense readiness can be kept secret. Information about private
individuals and incorporated entities must be guarded as detailed in
§ Right to Secrecy. Trade secrets made available to the state by
private parties in the course of contract fulfillment must be
protected as detailed in § Contract Award Procedure. All
information stored by the state that does not meet these criteria must
be published in a conveniently and multiply indexed electronic library
and thereby made available to the general public.
All state-owned and state-operated facilities must be publicly
catalogued with a POC and the controlling unit(s) of state and
department(s) thereof. The specific location, purpose, contents, and
budgetting of a facility can be secret though.
strictly subject to his security clearance, a supreme court justice of
a unit of state that controls a facility in whole or in part can visit
any portion of that facility any time the facility is open for
business, without advance arrangement, and cannot be delayed in
gaining access to facilities or personnel, except insofar as the
normal, chartered operation of the facility can render facilities or
personnel unavoidably but temporarily inaccessible as dictated by the
technology in use, and as explained specifically to the visiting
justice. He can ask any employee any question regarding that
employee's official activities, and he can make audiovisual recordings
of anything he encounters, strictly subject to the security context
requirements of the facilities and information thus recorded.
