Washington Legislature Hears Testimony on Public Records Abuses

The Association of Washington Cities recently reported on city officials testifying before the House Local Government Committee about spiteful and abusive public records requests.  In the most extreme example, the Town of Gold Bar may face disincorporate if it cannot find a way to pay for ongoing public records litigation against "a few harassing requesters.  The City of Pasco is dealing with a request for 34 years of records from a citizen who wasn't satisfied with a land use decision.  Given the continuing drain on local government resources, perhaps the 2013 legislative session will provide some relief from the most wasteful of requests.
