      I am curious to know about recording a local government public hearing, people not happy with how a company or industry is conducting business, or land dispute, something like that.

      It’s a public hearing. Can anybody with a camera go and record these things or do there need to be credentials handed out for such things.

      I might be attending one and I want to record it for prosperities sake.

      In theory, yes. In practice, check with the local governing body before going to the meeting. Local open meeting rules vary tremendously from town to town, state to state.

      Hi Jack! Wally here. I’ve been videoing public meetings for about 3 years now. That’s all I do. There is a “Public Meetings Act” that you can look up. Basically you can video any public meeting. Period. I video Wa. State legislature hearings, Thurston County Commissioners meetings, all kinds of protest meetings at the capitol. Hallway interviews after hearings. I will be happy to send you some of my videos.
