Bill description: HB 611 would require public agencies to post their meeting agendas online in addition to a physical posting at the building where the meetings will be held.

Rating: +1

Does it in any way restrict public access to information related to government activity or otherwise compromise government transparency or accountability? Conversely, does it increase public access to information related to government activity or increase government transparency or accountability? 


HB 611 would ensure a greater level of public accountability by requiring the online posting of meeting agendas for all agencies that maintain an online presence.

Current law only requires a meeting agenda be posted in the principal office of the agency that will hold the meeting, or in the building where the meeting will be held. Individuals who wish to know when meetings will be held and their agenda are not always able to make it to those places.

Though most agencies already do post meeting agendas online, HB 611 would codify this practice and require that all agencies do so.
