(Watch) Sen. Sampson: ‘I’m not in favor of muting my consituents.’

April 27, 2022

Senator Sampson speaks in opposition to S.B. 5269, which continues a law enacted in response to the Covid pandemic allowing public agencies (boards of education, planning and zoning, etc.) to continue holding remote and hybrid meetings as long as they comply with the requirements under existing law.


The legislation is written such that a municipality or public agency may hold a fully-remote public meeting in lieu of an in-person or hybrid (in-person with remote option) meeting format. The current law enabling remote public meetings expires on April 30, 2022.
