Sunshine Week question: adding agenda items

In 2015, the General Assembly clarified how a public body can amend an agenda for regular, special, called or rescheduled meetings after the meeting has already begun. The new law, Act 70, addressed the posting of meeting notices, stating that meeting agendas must be posted on the public body's website if it has a website. 

The law pertains to all public bodies subject to the Freedom of Information Act. The Municipal Association and the S.C. Press Association developed this flowchart to illustrate the process. Additional information about this issue is available in the Handbook for Municipal Officials.​
