Physical Description: 134 file folders and 2 compact discs
Arranged chronologically by date of meeting.
This series contains both restricted and unrestricted minutes and meeting files. The restricted documents are from the closed
sessions (1983-1993), and are exempt from disclosure in accordance with Government Code, Section 6254.14(a) of the California
Public Records Act. This code section prohibits the release of documents that detail "health care services contract negotiations,
and that reveal the deliberative processes, discussions, communications, or any other portion of the negotiations, including,
but not limited to, records related to those negotiations such as meeting minutes, research, work product, theories, or strategy
of the department, or its staff."
The unrestricted documents are the agendas and minutes from the public meetings of the Commission. These public meeting notices
and minutes are available in paper and electronic format for the years 1983 to 1993. For the years 1994 to 2007, the public
meeting materials are available only as PDF files. The files are on two compact discs (1983-2005 and 2006-2007).
