Proposed Legislation to Allow AG to Provide Model Rules on Open Meetings

House Bill 2721 would allow the Attorney General to adopt model rules on the Open Public Meetings Act much like the already-existing model rules on public records.

The bill was requested by Attorney General Rob McKenna (R). The sponsors of the bill are Reps. Miloscia (D), Rodne (R), Chandler (R), Upthegrove (R), Morrell (D), Sullivan (D), and Haler (R). These legislators span the political spectrum and are from all over the state--a very good sign for open government.
