Amendments to the Illinois Open Meetings ActDownload
On May 22, 2012, the Illinois General Assembly passed House Bill 4687, amending the Illinois Open Meetings Act. Once the Governor signs the bill, it will become effective January 1, 2013.
Section 2.02(a) of the Open Meetings Act currently requires that 48 hours prior to any scheduled regular meeting, an agenda for that meeting must be posted at the principal office of the public entity and at the location where the meeting is to be held. Additional notice and agenda requirements for special and rescheduled meetings are also set forth in Section 2.02(a).
