AB 2720, as introduced, Ting. State agencies: meetings: record of action taken.
The Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act requires, with specified exceptions, that all meetings of a state body, as defined, be open and public and all persons be permitted to attend any meeting of a state body. The act defines various terms for its purposes, including “action taken,” which means a collective decision made by the members of a state body, a collective commitment or promise by the members of the state body to make a positive or negative decision, or an actual vote by the members of a state body when sitting as a body or entity upon a motion, proposal, resolution, order, or similar action.
This bill would, if the action taken by the members of a state body is a recorded vote, require that the vote be counted and identified in the minutes of the state body.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.
