In an unpublished opinion issued on 11/14/2017, an Appellate Court ruled that the State Local Finance Board (LFB) must have a quorum of two thirds of its members to act. The ruling concerned the LFB’s vote, when only half of its members were present, to overturn the decision of a local ethics board.
