Governor Signs Open Meetings Bill Into Law

Governor Riley signed open meetings legislation into law Tuesday afternoon.

The new law will replace a 90-year-old law that Riley said had been crippled by court-created loopholes. The Legislature approved the new law without a dissenting vote. It spells out when government boards must meet in the open and how they must notify the public about upcoming meetings. Riley says it is another step toward making government in Alabama more accountable and transparent.
