Panel backs Internet posting of agendas

Public groups will get the OK to post agendas on the Internet if a bill worked up by the state's Information Technology Commission becomes law.

The commission reviewed a draft bill Thursday that allows electronic posting of meeting notices. Initially the bill said electronic notices on the Internet could replace posting agendas at the building where a group meets.But the commission conceded that not everyone has computer access to the Internet and agreed instead to strongly encourage public bodies to make their agendas available electronically.

Many entities already post agendas on the Internet.
