On the final day of session, the legislature passed HB 4001, a bill that makes numerous changes to the FOIA law, making it more costly to comply and more punitive for local units of government if a mistake is made. The bill passed in bipartisan fashion.
While we recognize this version is vastly improved from the introduced version, we still had concerns at the end of the day and remained opposed.
