Many states, including my home state of Michigan, have Sunshine (Open Meetings) Laws, that require meeting dates & times to be published in a local newspaper. In an
age where 30% or less of the public subscribe to a daily paper, 78% are
on the Internet and 500 Million have Facebook accounts, do these laws
need to be updated? What should be the minimum standard for keeping the
public informed about meetings, pending legislation, etc?
I recently found a great web site that’s focused on “Sunshine Laws” called the Sunshine Review. Their WikiFOIA page is one of my favorite parts of the site.
