WHAT RIGHTS ARE AFFORDED TO THE PUBLIC?
The Open Government Law of Guam provides the public with the right to attend meetings of public agencies, but does not require the public the opportunity to participate in such meeting. Although public agencies are not required to permit the public to speak at their meetings, many have chosen to do so. "Except for executive sessions and other meetings expressly authorized by public law to be closed, no board, commission or public officer of the government of Guam may prevent or deny the recording (audio and/or video) of any public meeting." (5 GCA § 8113(c)).
