Common Cause Maryland Testimony on SB 825; Open Meetings Act - Public Body Definition

March 6, 2013

This Common Cause Maryland testimony begins, 'Common Cause Maryland supports SB 825, which would clarify the Open Meetings Law to explicitly include subcommittees of the standing committees of the General Assembly. It has been a long-standing procedure by both chambers to keep subcommittee meetings open to the public.
