Remote and Hybrid Public Meeting Provisions Extended to March 31, 2025

Governor Healey has signed the supplemental, combined spending and borrowing bill into law. With its passing, municipal governments and other public entities are able to continue holding meetings remotely and in hybrid formats until March 31, 2025.

This authorizes the continuation of remote meetings and public access under the Open Meeting Law and other remote meeting provisions (including for Massachusetts nonprofit corporations and Massachusetts public companies) until March 31, 2025. This temporary extension allows the Legislature to consider a permanent extension of these measures.
