Closed Legislature

There are currently firsthand accounts that the Assembly has locked its chamber doors because of protests in the Capitol. Additionally, the Senate Committee on Banks held an unannounced meeting this morning.
Looking into the legality and reality of both accounts...

(UPDATE)Press person for Senator Joe Griffo, Chair of Banks, confirmed that the meeting was moved up to 9:30 a.m. to accommodate the 10 a.m. session. Said he would look into when it was announced.
On the Assembly side, they have locked the doors and said they're setting up television(s) on the third floor for people to watch the session on.

(UPDATE 2) Below is a screen shot that shows that the Senate Banking change was never announced. Additionally, the press person for Griffo said that staff was alerted about the change last night and did not make any mention of telling the public.
