Open government law changes aired in Macon (Ga.)


About 40 officials from across Middle Georgia, including five members from the Macon City Council, got a 90-minute review of the state’s open meetings and open records laws Wednesday.
Stefan Ritter, Georgia’s senior assistant attorney general, gave the talk at the Middle Georgia Regional Commission office on Emery Highway.
One of his oft-repeated themes was that people who think the open-government laws are being violated are, to a large extent, on their own.
