Bill Summary Details

Public Records (Oppose – Preemption)

CS/SB 400 (Rodrigues) and CS/HB 913 (McClure) prohibit a city, after receiving a public record request, from filing an action for declaratory judgement against the individual or entity making the request. The bills would prevent cities from seeking clarification from the courts as to whether a record is exempt, or exempt and confidential. CS/HB 913 was substituted to CS/SB 400. CS/SB 400 passed the Senate (39-0) and the House (113-0). (Taggart)
