Several bills – HB 129 (Richard Bell), HB 286 (Head), HB 956 (Keam) and HB 1078 (Boysko) – were introduced to provide local governments alternative ways to disseminate legal notices in addition to the required publication in newspapers, including the local government’s website, email distribution, etc.

Recognizing the complexity of modern communications, Subcommittee #2 of the House Counties, Cities and Towns Committee recommended to continue all of the bills until 2017 to allow stakeholders to work out acceptable language.
