The House Political Subdivisions Committee unanimously approved a watered-down version of Rep. Kraig Powell's bill requiring meeting agendas be posted 72 hours in advance.
The committee voted Monday to send out HB207 after the Heber Republican altered his original provision that only "unforeseen" items could be added to the posted agenda up to 24 hours before the meeting. Now, any item can be added to the agenda up until the day before the meeting.
Also, the bill states that the state could not take action against a city council, school board or other public entity subject to the Open and Public Meetings Act for failing to comply with the 72-hour notice rule. The bodies' actions would still be subject to being overturned if they violate the current 24-hour deadline for posting meeting notices.
