(220 ILCS 5/10-102)
(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 10-102)
All meetings of the Commission shall be conducted pursuant
to the provisions of the Open Meetings Act. Whenever the Commission holds an open meeting or,
pursuant to such Act, closes any meeting, or portion of any meeting, it
shall arrange for all discussions, deliberations and meetings to
be transcribed verbatim by a certified court reporter. The transcripts may be provided in an electronic format only. The Commission shall review and approve all such transcripts within 30 days
of the date of the meeting, but at least 10 days prior to the expiration of the time within which an application for rehearing is due in any proceeding that is the subject of the meeting. When, in the Commission's judgment, the exception of
the Open Meetings Act relied upon for authorizing the closing of a meeting,
as recorded pursuant to Section 2a of the Open Meetings Act, is no longer
applicable, such transcripts shall be made available to the public.
Any party to a Commission proceeding shall be given access to the
transcript of any closed meeting pertaining to such proceeding at least 10 days prior to the
expiration of the time within which his application for rehearing must be
filed, upon the signing of an appropriate protective agreement. Transcripts of open Commission meetings shall be electronically posted in the relevant docket on the same day that the transcript is approved by the Commission.
