Pa. High Court Outlaws Ban on Public Comment

Let the people speak!

So ruled the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, outlawing City Council’s ban on public comments at regular Council meetings.

The court ruled, 4-3, that Council was in violation of the state’s 1993 Sunshine Act, which requires “a reasonable opportunity” for residents and taxpayers at meetings “to comment on matters of concern, official action or deliberation which are or may be before the board or council prior to taking official action.”
