An Act To Implement the Recommendations of the Right To Know Advisory Committee Concerning Receipt of a Request for Public Records
Sec. 1. 1 MRSA §408-A, sub-§3, as amended by PL 2013, c. 350, §1, is further amended to read:
This bill amends the Freedom of Access Act to clarify that the date of receipt of a request to copy or inspect a public record is the date a sufficient description of the public record is received by the agency or official at the office responsible for maintaining the public record. An agency or official that receives a request for a public record that is not maintained by that office must forward the request to the appropriate office without willful delay.
