Can you imagine what the security situation would have been if 24 hours' notice had been given to protesters? There's a good chance that protesters would have shut down the capitol and made it physically impossible for senators to get in or out of the building. So, if for some odd reason that the legislature's rules requiring no notice (other than a bulletin board posting) don't apply in this case, it seems that the vote met the Open Meetings law's requirement to provide two hours' minimum notice. I'm curious to find out why Judge Sumi doesn't think so.
