MAA, group at odds over info request

The FOIA Group Inc., threatens to take legal action against the Mobile Airport Authority for denying a Freedom of Information Act request pertaining to the Airbus plant being built at Brookley Aeroplex. Roger Wehner, the authority’s executive director, said the request was denied to protect the interests of current and future Brookley tenants, not just Airbus. He said that if MAA, which is in the economic development business, handed over proprietary information, "we wouldn't be in the economic development business much longer," Wehner said.
