NORTHAMPTON, MA — Attorney General Maura Healey has issued an updated version of the state’s Open Meeting Law guide that reflects newly enacted laws and information about recent decisions regarding the law’s requirements.
The release of the new guide was timed to coincide with “Sunshine Week,” a national, nonpartisan initiative that highlights the importance of open government and the public’s right to know. The guide is available on the attorney general’s website atwww.mass.gov/ago/government-resources/open-meeting-law/.
“The Open Meeting Law Guide is one of many resources our office provides to help educate people about the law and its requirements in order to ensure clarity and compliance,” Healey said in a statement. “The additions to this guide, including guidance from previously issued decisions from our office, further our efforts to promote the pillars of the law: good governance and transparency.”
