Termination for FOIA violation dies in committee

February 22, 2017

VACo opposed HB 2402 (Morris), which provided that if the court finds that any officer or employee of a public body receives a request for records that was sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, and without legal excuse or justification, deliberately, willfully, and knowingly fails to make a response to such request, such officer or employee may be terminated for cause by his appointing authority or agency head. This bill failed to pass in Senate General Laws Committee on February 20.
