February 16, 2021 Show 989 Hour 1.

This legislative session, lawmakers have heard testimony from people in person and via teleconference. Those connections have not always gone flawlessly, but the question of whether or not to continue that option remains. 
 
Today's "In Their Own Words" segment features the House Local Government Committee debate on House Bill 1117, a bill to revise provisions for public meetings held by teleconference. You'll hear a portion of that hearing outlining the policy changes and concerns about public access to public meetings. 
 

In Their Own Words brings you closer to the debates and conversations behind legislative topics. It’s supported by SDN Communications.
