AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PUBLIC COMMENT AT OPEN MEETINGS.
This Act requires that meetings of public bodies that are open to the public must provide an opportunity for public comment. The time for public comment may be limited if the limit is applied uniformly and public comment may be limited if it is irrelevant, immaterial, insubstantial, cumulative, or privileged. Meetings of a public body of the General Assembly are excluded from the requirement to provide an opportunity for public comment because under § 9 of Art.. II of the Delaware Constitution, the rules of proceedings for legislative meetings are established by the Senate and House of Representatives of each General Assembly. This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
