RALEIGH — Gov. Roy Cooper’s office has developed draft guidance for state agencies on public records and open meetings access.
North Carolina laws governing public records and open meetings direct public employees to provide access. While there are some exceptions to the laws, in general the records of government are presumed to be public unless otherwise protected, including drafts of documents, memos, voice recordings and social media posts.
The governor’s office is seeking comments on this draft guidance by April 9.
