§ 251.14. Public observers.
All meetings of the Commission and committees at which formal actions are taken will be open to the public at all times, subject to the following guidelines:
(1) Visitors to meetings, including representatives of the news media, may be present as observers but not as participants. Questions, comments, and discussion from the general public will be permitted only at the discretion of the Commission. This paragraph does not apply to staff and others who are invited by the chairperson, the Commission, or committees in the course of their proceedings.
(2) Space for visitors will be available on a first-come-first-served basis, at the time and place of meetings, in such manner as to neither impede nor interfere with the normal operating conduct of the meetings.
(3) Any person preventing, disturbing, or interrupting such public meeting may be requested to leave the meeting and may be removed upon failure to comply.
(4) Visitors to meetings will be allowed to record the proceedings. However, television cameras or photographic equipment shall not be used except with the expressed approval of the chairperson, the Commission or committee.
