The Illinois High School Association is defending its right to keep its records on sponsorship deals, vendors and pension spending under wraps.

The Better Government Association has filed suit against the agency. They want a judge to force the IHSA to turn the records over, especially since lawmakers are trying to get more details about how the agency is conducting business, but the IHSA has released a letter from the Attorney General's office, dated in October 2010, which clearly indicates that they are a private entity and are not subject to FOIA laws.
