Gov. Lee Signs Bill Into Law That Requires TN Governing Bodies To Allow Times For Public Comment

By Jason Vaughn, The Tennessee Conservative, May 1, 2023– ... Regarding the need for such legislation, Senator Lowe said, “We have had some indications throughout the state, of election commissions, occasionally school boards, that are not providing adequate public comment in meetings that have an agenda with actionable items. This would make it by law, that they would have to provide a time for public comment.”

The bill also allows governing bodies to put reasonable limitations on public comment. (link)
