Both houses of the NH legislature have passed a bill to require meaningful non-public minutes. If it is signed by the Governor, it will radically increase the amount of information made available to citizens of Timberlane.
This bill was introduced by Right to Know NH. This post is from RighttoknowNH.wordpress.com:
The Senate passed HB1418 on the regular calendar by a unanimous voice vote this week. This bill requires the same level of details in non-public minutes as for public minutes. It was previously approved 4-0 by the Senate Executive Departments and Administration Committee with a recommendation that the bill ought to pass. HB1418 was reported to the full Senate by Sen. Donna Soucy:
This legislation clarifies what information is to be included in the minutes of non-public sessions pursuant to the Right-to-Know Law. This clarification is needed so that non-public session minutes contain the same information that would be contained if the session had occurred in public. The legislation ensures greater transparency in government and the committee voted favorably 4-0 and would ask for your support in its recommendation.
The bill now goes to the Governor.
