2016 SB 17, “Open Meetings Act – Retention of Minutes and Tape Recordings – Revision”, increases the length of time that a public body is required to retain minutes and tape recordings under the Open Meetings Act.
(e) A public body shall keep a copy of the written minutes of each session and any tape recording made under subsection (b)(2)(i) or (c)(3)(i) of this section for at least [1 year] 5 YEARS after the date of the session.
While this is a small gesture of government to allow the People longer access to meeting information, it is a good bill.
Hearing 1/21 at 1:00 p.m.
