Re:      OPRA & OPMA Bills Held

Dear Mayor:

Yesterday, S-1451, which amends the Open Public Meetings Act, and S-1452, which amends the Open Public Records Act were scheduled for a Senate floor vote.  Both bills were HELD.  For more information on these bills please see our December 19, 2012 Dear Mayors Letter.

Senator Weinberg’s office reached out to us yesterday to discuss possible further amendments to the bills.  The League appreciates Senator Weinberg’s willingness to meet with us to discuss our concerns with the bills and we look forward to continuing to work with Senator Weinberg on this important issue. 

We anticipate that the bills may be further amended and considered by the Senate in February. 

If you have any questions or need additional information please contact Lori Buckelew at or 609-695-3481 x 112.

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
