House OKs Public Records Bill

A bill to tighten Idaho’s public records bill has passed the Idaho House and now heads to the Senate for consideration. The measure, sponsored by Rep. Gayle Batt, R-Wilder, cleared on a 67-0 vote. The bill would require that government entities providing records give requesters an itemized list of all charges that might be associated with requests, including labor and supplies.  It would also prevent governments from charging for the first 100 pages of requests or the first two hours of labor/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: Are you satisfied that public records laws in Idaho are adequate?
