NEWS: OMA Remote Meeting Legislation

Action: Informational

On Friday, June 12, 2020, the Governor signed P.A. 100-0640 (SB 2135) into law. This new law amends the OMA to expressly authorize public bodies to meet remotely without the otherwise required quorum present at the meeting place. The law became effective immediately. There is a detailed discussion of SB 2135 here.

Public bodies should be aware of a few new statutory requirements that may require them to change their remote meeting procedures and notices moving forward. Please see the Ancel Glink Municipal Minute post for details: http://municipalminute.ancelglink.com/2020/06/governor-signs-oma-remote-meeting.html
