News Brief - January 2007:

Gov. Spitzer Orders that State Agencies Broadcast Their Meetings over the Web, APA Asks for Exemption.

Stating that most members of the public cannot take advantage of the Open Meetings Law to attend public meetings, Gov. Eliot Spitzer issued an executive order on January 1 that all state agencies subject to the Open Meetings Law must broadcast their meetings over the web by July 1, 2007, and submit a plan to do so by March 1. Citing financial obstacles, the Adirondack Park Agency, which holds most of its meetings at a distant, isolated location in the high peaks region in a little town near Lake Placid where few members of the public can attend, requested an exemption from the deadline to submit the plan.
