Bill summary

Creates the 10-member Joint Legislative Study Committee on Public Records and Open Meetings to study ways to improve transparency of state and local government in the state. Requires the Committee to examine existing laws regarding public access to government records and meetings and legislation enacted in other states that allows greater public access than we currently have in North Carolina. Specifies issues to be included in the study. Requires five members of the House of Representatives to be appointed by the Speaker of the House and five members of the Senate to be appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. Sets out provisions concerning naming cochairs, filling vacancies, and staffing the Committee. Requires an interim report to the 2015 General Assembly when it reconvenes in 2016 and requires a final report to the 2015 General Assembly, at which time the Committee terminates.
