This bill would clarify that a records custodian is not subject to penalties for a knowing and willful violation of P.L.1963, c.73 (C.47:1A-1 et seq.), commonly referred to as the "Open Public Records Act," if the custodian exercised due diligence in attempting to provide access to a record requested pursuant to that law. Under the bill, due diligence would be deemed to have been exercised if a custodian made at least two documented attempts to collect the requested record within seven days of receiving the request.
