Sustained Outrage

Secret meetings, May 6, 2011

Two meetings in today’s edition of The State Register did not comply with the public notice requirements of  West Virginia’s open meetings act.

The agencies involved? The state Investment Management Board and Workforce West Virginia.

As we’ve reminded folks before, the West Virginia Open Governmental Proceedings Act requires agencies to send meeting notices to the Secretary of State in time for notices to appear in the State Register five days prior to a scheduled meeting. Every week, we list the agencies that didn’t comply, thanks to the Secretary of State’s office, which kindly marks those agencies with an asterisk in the list of meetings published each Friday in the Register.
