David E. Hudson of Hull Barrett, PC compiles the new Georgia Sunshine Laws handbook.
Hull Barrett, PC’s attorney, David E. Hudson, has compiled a handbook covering the new Georgia Sunshine Laws. After two legislative sessions, an overhaul of Georgia’s open government laws (House Bill 397) was passed by the General Assembly and signed by Governor Nathan Deal on April 17, 2012. The changes in the law are currently in effect, and make significant changes. In the handbook, Mr. Hudson provides a guide to O.C.G.A. § 50-14-1 (open meetings) and § 50-18-70 (open records), and further discusses if government officials must answer questions; conducting and documenting meetings; what meetings are open and closed; how and when records are to be produced and costs; and what records are open and not open.
