Quinn Signs Transparency Legislation

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation to improve public access to information about government meetings. 

The law requires governmental bodies holding an public meeting to post information on the gathering and its agenda on the Internet 48 hours before the event. The governor says the law gives the public better access to information that may impact their lives. The bill will take effect in 2013.
