State Laws Re: Public Access to Govt. Communications


"Sec. 551.006. WRITTEN ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS ACCESSIBLE TO PUBLIC.
https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/GV/htm/GV.551.htm


(b)  A governmental body may have
no more than one online message board or similar Internet application to be used for the purposes described in Subsection (a).  The online message board or similar Internet application must be owned or controlled by the governmental body, prominently displayed on the governmental body's primary Internet web page, and no more than one click away from the governmental body's primary Internet web page.

(c)  The online message board or similar Internet application described in Subsection (a) may only be used by members of the governmental body or staff members of the governmental body who have received specific authorization from a member of the governmental body. 
In the event that a staff member posts a communication to the online message board or similar Internet application, the name and title of the staff member must be posted along with the communication."



Editorial Opinion / Observation:  many Texas Municipal League cities are encouraging the designation of a Municipal Information Officer (MIO) who can remain current of the ever-changing environment of communications, both digitally and in print, that is accompanied by government regulations, laws (state government code) and TML guidance.
