PCLI gets kudos from SPJ
From SPJ’s newsletter:
ABSURDIA IN ISLANDIA
Journalists and the general public on Long Island are scratching their heads after one municipal body, the Islandia Village Board, briefly considered banning audio and video recording and transmission of public meetings. The Press Club of Long Island, the local chapter of SPJ, strongly opposed the proposal. In an interesting twist, the day a public hearing was scheduled for the measure, the Board announced it would be tabled. The mayor later indicated to Newsday columnist Joye Brown that the proposal would not proceed.
