Ann Taylor Schwing has written a second edition of her excellent book summarizing open meetings and records laws throughout the United States. The book has extensive citations to court cases, attorney general opinions and law review articles from all over the country. I have a copy of the first edition of this book in my law library, and have already sent off a request for the second edition.

An excellent reference tool, this volume covers meeting requirements, litigation procedures as well as a list of defenses that typically fail. In addition, Open Meeting Laws provides an invaluable table of statutes, cases, attorney general opinions and a comprehensive listing of secondary authorities to aid in research.
The first edition is a most impressive work. I’m glad to have it in my personal library.

Open Meeting Laws 2d is an invaluable reference tool. My office refers to it whenever there is an open meetings question, it saves days of research.

By the publication in 1994 of Open Meeting Laws, Ann Taylor Schwing made a substantial down payment towards the cost of insuring that our fundamental freedoms survive. With this, an updated, second edition of that work, Ms. Schwing reprises that contribution.
Ann Taylor Schwing has significantly elevated the democratic values of government openness, responsiveness and accountability . . . .
