Department of State's Reports
Our annual “Access” reports track the General Assembly's compliance with the state's Open Meetings law. The law requires most state and municipal departments, agencies, committees and councils to file notices and agendas of upcoming meetings with us. Most notices must be filed at least 48 hours before the date and time of the meeting. Since the General Assembly is not subject to the Open Meetings law, its compliance is completely voluntary.
