Government in the Sunshine Act

The Government in the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552b, generally requires multi-member federal agencies; i.e., the FCC and SEC, to hold their meetings in public and to give advance public notice of their meetings. The goal of the Sunshine Act is to promote public access to information about the decision-making processes of the federal government and to improve those processes by exposing them to public view.
