TEXAS AG RULES, GOVERNMENT ID'S CAN BE REQUIRED AS CONDITION TO ENTRY INTO OPEN MEETINGS
 
It seems though the opinion is narrow to instances wherein the law would otherwise require an ID for security reasons.
 


I can see the abuse now -

Could not a governing authority hold a meeting in a secure area as a way to limit public participation?

Not just for the sake of it - also it would still have to be open to the public. All the opinion said is for security reasons in certain facilities they require a picture ID - - which at this point everyone should have anyway because of voting.

But the city could not just move the meeting a place which requires an ID unless it was necessary for the purpose of the meeting

I can see an attempt to abuse this decision, but I also see the courts stopping it

But good question - thanks
