The Mississippi State Senate has adopted a rule to open all legislative conference committees to the public.
Before committee meetings dealing with finacial issues and other sensitive issues were often closed to the public.
The house has already adopted a different version of this same "Open Door" policy.
The two houses will now have to work out a compromise on the new rules.
