We've begun to have some success in Austin, Texas getting the local
fusion center to open up.  The Austin Regional Intelligence Center was
chartered with an oversight body responsible for monitoring and
suggesting changes to the center's privacy policy which, to some
degree, governs the information-generation and -sharing hub's
operations.  The meeting minutes are Texas Open Records, so they're
available for the asking.  The advisory committee suggested ARIC save
time, money, and gain a transparency win by voluntarily posting the
minutes on their website:

I've re-posted the minutes to SoundCloud where they can be downloaded.

Local journalist Julie Wilson is the first to write about this.

If you're interested in this stuff, please contact me off list as it
may be possible to replicate this model across the country.  There's a
state-level working group looking at that possibility for Texas fusion
centers.
