Few local N.Y. towns comply with new open meeting law

From Bennington Banner:

A little-reported but substantive amendment to New York Open Meeting Law has gone largely unheeded by a number of municipalities since it went into effect in February.

A new provision in New York law, signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last December, requires public records that are scheduled to be the subject of discussion during an open meeting to be available upon request "to the extent practicable" prior to or at the meeting.
