Gov. Quinn Signs Legislation To Foster Government Openness

Gov. Pat Quinn has signed legislation to improve the public's access to information about government meetings.

The law requires public bodies holding an open meeting to post information on the gathering and its agenda on the Internet 48 hours before the event.

Quinn signed the bill Thursday at the DuPage County building in Wheaton.

The governor says the law gives the public greater access to information and activities that impact their lives.

Quinn says the intent is to foster government openness and accountability. The law takes effect Jan. 1.
