Local government meeting agendas and public comment bill

January 21, 2016

In an effort to dictate the way local public bodies conduct their business, HB 757 (Robert Bell) would mandate that the agenda for all meetings be disseminated at least seven days prior to the meeting. In addition, the meeting shall provide for at least five minutes of public comment on each item on the agenda before any action can be taken on the agenda item.

VACo is working with the patron and the FOIA Council staff to refine the language but to ensure that citizens have an opportunity to be heard.
