FOIA Bill Requires Localities to Waive Fees

January 23, 2018

VACo opposes HB 1603 (Roem), which requires public bodies to waive the first two hours of search and production of documents for any requestor that files 20 request or less in a 31-day period. The bill also requires that no charge over $50 may be levied unless the requestor agrees to the higher amount. The bill further mandates that the lowest paid individual must fulfill the request. This bill will likely add additional fiscal and workload strain on localities.
