SB 158 - This act creates the "State Board of Public Records" (Board). The Board is located in the Office of Administration and develops recommendations to monitor compliance of Missouri's Sunshine Law (Chapter 610, RSMo). The Board has subpoena power to view all records. The Board will also determine if a central office dealing with citizen's complaints is necessary.
The Board is comprised of seven members to be appointed by
the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate. No more
than four members may be of the same political party. Board
members will not receive compensation, but will be reimbursed for
necessary and actual expenses.
