Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Another meeting is scheduled on the state's plan to take over part of the South Charleston Technology Park, and Gov. Joe Manchin says this time the gathering will be open to the media.

A closed-door meeting held Tuesday about the plan drew complaints from the Charleston Gazette and the Charleston Daily Mail.

The newspapers argued that the gathering violated the state's open meetings law because it involved elected officials discussing the possible use of public money.

Manchin said Wednesday that all relevant facts and figures, including the cost of operating buildings the state would acquire, will be shared with the media at next Tuesday's meeting.

The property is owned by Dow Chemical.
