Open meetings legislation, which was introduced during the 1989 session of the Georgia General Assembly, included: A proposed constitutional amendment which would have made all General Assembly sessions and committee meetings open to the public; a bill dealing with open meeting and records provisions of school disciplinary hearings; a bill which would have exempted most records dealing with the hiring of high-level or professional personnel by a state agency, and which exempted records resulting from staff services to the Legislative and Congressional Reapportionment Office, the Senate Research Office, or the House Research Office; a bill which, although similar to the above bill, restricted the exemption regarding hiring to the Board of Regents; a bill requiring agencies holding other than regularly scheduled meetings to give notice of the time, place, and subjects expected to be discussed; and a bill exempting county and municipal hospital authorities from the disclosure of any data which may give the hospital authority a competitive advantage.
