The Nebraska School Activities Association would have to open its records and meetings to the public under a proposal from Lincoln State Senator Bill Avery.
“We have a number of reports of people who have tried to attend their meetings and been denied access and reasons being things like we don’t have room for you to sit down, well I’d be happy to stand, oh we can’t let you stand, OK I’ll sit on the steps, oh you can’t do that either. Basically we don’t the public having access to our meetings.”
Senator Avery tells us that public money goes into the NSAA in the form of fees and dues and the public has a right to know what they are doing with their money. Avery says the public also has a right to know what they are doing in their meetings.
