    Question of the Day!
Answer

The Massachusetts Open Meeting Law has two main goals. The primary goal of the law is to ensure transparency in the deliberations on which public policy is based. Because the democratic process depends on the public having knowledge about the considerations underlying governmental action, the Open Meeting Law requires, with some exceptions, that meetings of public bodies be open to the public. In addition, the law also seeks to balance the public interest in witnessing the deliberations of public officials with the government need to manage its operations efficiently. For more information, see the Attorney General Open Meeting Law Guide.
