HB 175 Headed to the Governor

The Oakwood Hills-inspired Open Meetings Act reform measure passed the House unanimously Sunday, sending the bill to Gov. Bruce Rauner’s desk.


Extending the window of time people have to report possible violations of the act to the attorney general’s public access counselor, House Bill 175 was approved by the House in a 112-0 vote. The vote ratified an amendment that clarifies that the new time limit cannot be applied to meetings that took place before the law goes into effect.

The bill returned to the House on Sunday for a concurrence vote after the Senate voted 57-0 Friday.
