Public records, meetings laws amendments proposed in new legislation

A bill that would impose time limits for public bodies to respond to public records requests and limiting fees they may charge for the records has been introduced into the 2011 Legislature at the request of Attorney General John Kroger. Senate Bill 41 would require a public body to respond to a record request and state the amount of any fees within “10 working days.” Senate Bill 47 would require meeting minutes to be available 7 working days after the meeting.
