This bill states that If a public record requester makes a request that will exceed more than five hours of labor within a month, the local authority has the ability to charge for the labor costs to perform the search and copying task. The hope is that local authorities will not charge fees unless it truly is a burden to the agency. In addition, a public agency can require payment in advance of a search where they expect more than five hours of labor is necessary, and require payment before the records are disclosed.
