AB 557 – Brown Act – Teleconference When Imminent Risk To Health Or Safety

CATEGORY: Client Update for Public Agencies, Fire Watch, Law Enforcement Briefing Room
CLIENT TYPE: Public Employers, Public Safety
DATE: Nov 07, 2023

This bill would revise the authority of a legislative body to hold a teleconference meeting under existing abbreviated teleconferencing procedures when a declared state of emergency is in effect.  Specifically, the bill would extend indefinitely that authority in the circumstances under which the legislative body either (1) meets for the purpose of determining whether, as a result of the emergency, meeting in person would present imminent risks to the health or safety of attendees, or (2) has previously made that determination.  The bill would also extend the period for a legislative body to make the above-described findings related to a continuing state of emergency to not later than 45 days after the first teleconferenced meeting, and every 45 days thereafter, in order to continue to meet under the abbreviated teleconferencing procedures.

(Amends and repeal Section 54953 of the Government Code.)
