A quick guide to the Executive Order impacting public meetings and public records requests

Now, more than ever, Rhode Islanders need to have trust and confidence in their state and local government. We encourage public bodies and agencies to continue to operate as openly and transparently as possible.

On March 16, 2020, Governor Raimondo issued an executive order that modifies certain provisions of the Open Meetings Act ("OMA") and Access to Public Records Act ("APRA") through April 15, as part of the State's emergency response to COVID-19.

This document is intended to serve as a quick guide to the OMA and APRA modifications contained in the Order.
