Missouri's Sunshine Law is the embodiment of Missouri's commitment to openness in government. Chapter 610 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri is the foundation of what has become known as Missouri's Sunshine Law.

Missouri Sunshine Law applies to all public governmental bodies

“It is the public policy of this state that meetings, records, votes, actions, and deliberations of public governmental bodies be open to the public unless otherwise provided by law.”
610.011, RSMo

The Missouri Sunshine Law portion of the Attorney General's website is a resource to help Missourians understand Missouri Sunshine Law and its implications for Missouri's public and quasi-public governmental bodies, members of those bodies, those that conduct business with a public governmental body, and private citizens.
