OMA Amendment Addresses Review of Executive Session Minutes

We did not see much activity in this session of the Illinois General Assembly regarding the Open Meetings Act or FOIA. The one bill that did pass amends the provisions relating to review of executive session meeting minutes.

Previously, each public body was required to conduct a review of their executive session minutes no less than semi-annually. P.A. 102-0653 amended the OMA to address public bodies that do not meet regularly. Under this Act, public bodies are now allowed to review their executive session meeting minutes every six months or as soon as practicable. The Act also also allows ad hoc committees to review their executive session meeting minutes at their next meeting.
