Administrative Law Forum 2022: Open Meetings After Covid – What are the Rules?


After the Governor declared a state of emergency in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, he suspended a number of state laws, including the laws governing electronic participation in open meetings. But now that the state of emergency has expired, what are the rules for electronic participation. The session will discuss the statutes governing who can participate electronically in an open meeting, how they can participate and what other rules must be followed, including new procedures contained in legislation passed during the 2022 legislative session. This session will also discuss recent cases under the Open Meetings Act on issues such as the notice requirements and who is subject to the Open Meetings Act.
