Citizen Volunteer Advisory Committees (Monitor) – Passed

CS/CS/SB 224 (Wright) and CS/HB 413 (Altman) authorize citizen volunteer advisory committees that are comprised of representatives from four or more counties to conduct virtual public meetings and workshops using communications media technology. CS/HB 413 specifies that there must also be a 100-mile distance between the two most distant counties. The public notice must specify whether the meeting or workshop will be held in person or virtually and how members of the public can participate. CS/CS/SB 224 passed the Senate (39-0) and the House (112-0) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (Wagoner)
