2016-2017 Regular Session
This act amends the Open Public Records Act (OPRA), to provide that, if it can be proven that a municipal clerk has exercised due diligence in attempting to collect a record requested under OPRA, by documenting at least two attempts to collect the requested record within seven days of receiving the request, the municipal official in actual possession of the record will be deemed to be the custodian of the requested record, and therefore be liable for any violations, penalties, or disciplinary proceedings that may result from an unreasonable denial of access to the requested record.
