Office of Open Records Offers Updated Guidance

May 26th, 2020

The state Office of Open Records (OOR) recently issued an updated advisory related to the Right-to-Know Law (RTKL), to assist agencies and requesters with navigating issues related to the ongoing coronavirus emergency. The most recent advisory clarifies that agencies now in the yellow phase should process RTKL requests and participate in RTKL appeals as they would normally. Due to the current pandemic, exceptions may be necessary, and the OOR will continue to address those on a case-by-case basis.
