Proposed WAC Changes


Public Records

Effective July 21, 2017, the University made the following emergency rule changes to the Washington Administrative Code Chapter 504-45: Public Records.

The University is updating procedures regarding requests for public records in order to comply with legislative changes pursuant to RCW 42.56.120(2), as amended by Chapter 304, Laws of 2017, sec. 3, which are effective July 23, 2017. WSU is required to properly use state resources in responding to public records requests and adoption of the fee structure furthers that purpose. Adoption of the emergency rules allows WSU to assess fees for response to public records in a manner that is consistent with RCW 42.56.

WSU intends to proceed with permanent rulemaking on this subject in the near future.
