"...any claims of state open meeting violations must be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated."

For years, Sunshine Laws in ND have been helpful to ND citizens interested in how their local, regional and state governmental authorities operate. To the point, it is accountability for elected, appointed, and hired officials in ND.
