Schools in Florida want to bid on property in secret.

The Online Ledger reports that some schools want exemption from Sunshine Law for land deals Florida's open government Sunshine Law would generally not allow districts to negotiate property deals in secret. however, school districts are seeking the exemption claiming that land owners hike prices when they hear school districts are property hunting.

That may be true however something about the phrase "secret property negotiations" strikes me as inviting the appearance of corruption.
