Assembly overwhelmingly approves bill that would allow requesters to make their own copies of public records

The Assembly on Monday unanimously voted its approval of a bill that would allow CPRA requesters to use their own equipment, such as a cell phone, to copy public records.

AB 1819 by the Assembly Judiciary Committee has the strong support of CNPA, as it allows requesters a way to copy public records without facing sometimes-steep duplication costs charged by agencies.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
