Honorable David Swinford, Chair, House Committee on State Affairs
John S. O'Brien, Deputy Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB1083 by Martinez Fischer (Relating to the application of the open meetings law and the public information law to an independent organization established by a power region and certified by the Public Utility Commission.), As Introduced
The bill would apply open meetings and public information laws to independent organizations established by a power region and certified by the Public Utility Commission. No state agency would be affected by this requirement. The independent organizations are not governmental entities; therefore, there would be no fiscal impact on units of local government.
The bill would take effect immediately upon receiving a two-thirds majority vote in both houses; otherwise, the bill would take effect September 1, 2005.
