Question: 

What sort of protection is afforded to government officials or employees who rely on the legal advice of the board?

Answer: 

Declaratory orders issued by the board, determining the applicability of the open meetings or records law to specific fact situations, have the force of law. Amendments to both Chapter 21 and 22 provide protection to government officials who rely on written advice of the Public Information Board, the attorney general or the government body’s attorney.
