the opposite way that you can record under the law untill the session announces it goes to closed session and media and public are asked to leave?
From everyhting im familiar with it goes back to interfering in the administration of government. With that being said, thats how my state views it,
although off all city council meetings ive pulled security for, its never once been an issue with people recording.
State House though falls under a different security style just because of their status. Although I wonder if it has anything to dow ith the way the
federal open records / sunshine law is worded as well?
hmmmm... that makes me wonder...
I know meetings can bec lsoed to the public if it deals with personnel / pay issues. If a vote occurs they are required to relase how each member
voted, but not specifics...
If anyone lives in that neck of the woods, can you check the local news to see how this progresses for us?
