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.

On March 28, the Court will hear arguments in Benisek v. Lamone, a First Amendment challenge to Maryland’s Sixth Congressional District, which Democrats drew after the 2010 census in a successful attempt to defeat a longtime Republican incumbent. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the plaintiffs, it could result in a nationwide prohibition against the manipulation of legislative boundaries for political advantage.
