HB 1002 (2024)

Allow fee for large electronic record requests under Right-to-Know law

Summary:

Establishes parameters for when a public body may charge a fee for records under the state Right-to-Know law. Requests must take at least ten hours to fill before there is a charge, and the charge cannot exceed $25 per hour.

The House rewrote the bill. The new bill allows an extra fee for large requests beyond 250 "electronic communications" (e.g. email), up to $1 per communication. The fee for public record requests must be waived for low income individuals or if "information is in the public interest."
