A-State professor breaks down Arkansas' FOIA law pertaining to public meetings

Arkansas' Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, has rules for notifying the public when a public entity has a meeting.

Recently, a former board member with the Craighead County-Jonesboro Public Library board filed a FOIA complaint saying a subcommittee of the board met in October without notifying the public.
