Update to Open Meetings Law

On Monday, the Governor signed into law an amendment to Open Meetings Law.  Now, public bodies are required to make available or post to their website the documents that they will discussing at least 24 hours prior to the open meeting at which they will be discussing the documents.  It’s our understanding that this new requirement takes effect on November 17th (30 days after the signing into law, according to the text).  

For your reference, the text of the law is available here.  

It’s best practice to seek legal counsel should you have any questions regarding the new law.
