On July 16, the Lt. Governor, as Acting Governor, signed legislation that simply extends certain COVID-related amendments to the Open Meeting Law, as modified by Chapter 22 of the Acts of 2022, including permitting remote meetings and participation until March 31, 2023. The legislation was amended to include an emergency preamble thereby giving immediate affect to these changes. At MMLA’s urging, and as previously reported, no additional changes were made to the Open Meeting Law. See related coverage below. A link to the signed legislation will be added here shortly.
