HB 4182 (Rep. Price, R – Holland) passed out of the House Oversight and Ethics committee this week. This bill amends the Open Meetings Act and would make it a requirement that an elected member of a public body must be physically present to vote on an issue in order for a meeting to be considered open to the public, unless it is an emergency session, in which case this requirement does not apply.
This is a reintroduction from last session when the bill died in lame duck.
