The legislature extended the pandemic emergency provisions for remote access that were set to expire Friday, July 15, to March 31, 2023.  So, instead of making the change permanent, the legislature has kicked the can down the road and will have to take up making some sort of permanent provision for remote access to public meetings early in the new session that begins in January. (Note: the League supported a bill this session, H.3152 /S.2082, that would have made remote access and participation during public meetings permanent and routine.)
