All public body closed meetings must be electronically recorded, unless otherwise prohibited by attorney-client privilege, effective Aug. 1, 2008.

Sponsored by Rep. Gene Pelowski Jr. (DFL-Winona) and Sen. Don Betzold (DFL-Fridley), the law also mandates these recordings be preserved for at least three years.

Additionally, in a case when a public body is found to have violated an official opinion, the court may award reasonable attorneys fees to the plaintiff.
