Relating to business days for purposes of the public information law.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1416 would define the term "business day" for the purpose of the public information law. This would clarify and standardize the business day requirements for handling and processing public information requests.
The provisions of HB 1416 are consistent with limited government because they clarify the statute in such a way as to make it less open to interpretation, thereby reducing opportunities for entities subject to disclosing public information to delay, obfuscate, or refuse to make timely disclosures.
