B. Budget sessions.

Meetings of a public governmental body to discuss its budget must be open to the public. Budget sessions generally do not fall within an exception to the Sunshine Law. See also The Kansas City Star v. Shields, 771 S.W.2d 101, 102 (Mo.Ct.App. 1989) (holding that informal meeting of finance committee of city council, in which budget proposal was discussed, violated the Sunshine Law); Hudson v. School District of Kansas City, 578 S.W.2d 301, 308 (Mo.Ct.App. 1979) (holding that meeting of school district to discuss furlough of several hundred teachers and administrative employees in order to solve $7.3 million budget deficit should have been open to the public under the Sunshine Law).
