Gazette:  Proposal will give compliance board power to impose fines

Del. Dan K. Morhaim (D-Dist. 11) of Owings Mills is proposing legislation that would give Maryland’s Open Meetings Compliance Board the power to crack down and impose fines on public bodies that violate the law by closing proceedings that should stay open.
