    Open Meetings Act

    Legal Guidance

    "Due to COVID-19, the governor suspended certain requirements under the Texas Open Meetings Act. What are the new requirements and when does the suspension expire?"

    What resources are available to counties on the Texas Open Meetings Act during the COVID-19 pandemic?

    TAC continues to update our Explanation of COVID-19 Suspension of Texas Open Meetings Act page as new information becomes available. This webpage includes information about telephone conference call and videoconference meeting requirements, notice of meeting requirements and much more. The suspension is in effect until terminated by the governor or until the state disaster declaration is lifted or expires. You can also call the TAC Helpline at (888) 275-8224 and one of our Legal Services staff will be happy to assist you.
