Conducting The People's Business in Private: Story Details Lawmakers' Closed-Door Meetings
AUGUSTA, Maine - Legislative leaders held more closed-door deliberations Thursday about the new state budget. The only problem is, according to the The Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, the law doesn't really allow for that.
Editor-in-Chief John Christie says the Legislature itself wanted a more transparent process.
Christie talks with MPBN Morning Edition host Irwin Gratz about his story that details how legislators are conducting public business in private.
