MIACCA's Introduced HB 4705 passes House Oversight Committee

06/24/2021 9:14 PM | M.J. D'Smith (Administrator)

This bill would mandate that every meeting of a public body that is a state licensing board, commission panel, or rule-making board, except a meeting or part of a meeting held in closed session, must be recorded in a manner that allows for the capture of sound,  MIACCA has been active in trying to get these meetings recorded in order to reference things that are not always captured in minutes.  This will provide our members involved in these meetings to access them in a thorough manner.  The bill states that these recordings will have to be maintained for one year.  You may view the bill here.

The bill has passed through the House Oversight Committee hearing. We will keep you posted on the next steps in the process.

We gratefully appreciate Representatives Luke Meerman, Gary Howell,  Jeffrey Yaroch and Steven Johnson for introducing this important piece of legislation.
