State office seeks input on charges for records inspection

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — State officials are seeking input on whether government offices should be able to charge citizens to inspect public records.

Current state law allows charges for copying records, but inspection is generally free.

Earlier this year, legislation was introduced to permit charges for inspection. The Office of Open Records Counsel will make recommendations to the General Assembly on the issue by Jan. 15.

Tennessee residents can comment on the proposal through an online survey on the Office of Open Records Counsel website, www.comptroller.tn.gov/openrecords . A separate survey for governmental entities is also available on the site.

In addition, the office will hold public hearings in Knoxville, Nashville and Jackson, the week of Sept. 14. Citizens can send written comments to comments.open.records@cot.tn.gov.
