Attorney General Open Meeting Law Opinion

(Phoenix, Ariz. - Dec. 24, 2007) Attorney General Terry Goddard today released a legal Opinion making clear that the Open Meeting Law does not prohibit a member of a public body from speaking to the media concerning matters that may be considered by that body in the future.

Representatives David Lujan and Steve Gallardo requested the Opinion to clarify whether comments to the media would violate the Open Meeting Law (OML) if a quorum of the public body reads or hears those comments.
