Bill Would Amend OMA Website Posting Provisions

This week, we reported on a couple of proposed bills that would amend the Local Records Act to establish new website posting requirements for local governments. You can revisit that post here

Another "website" bill was introduced this week that would affect local governments.  HB 1323. This bill would amend the Open Meetings Act to remove the language that limited website posting requirements to public  bodies whose full-time staff maintains the website.  That means that any public body with a website would be required to comply with the website posting requirements of the OMA, including posting of agendas, meeting minutes, and notices.

Looks like we are going to see a lot of action this session on legislation viewed as pro-transparency, at least as it relates to local governments.
