• Posted in


Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum will join available members of the Public Records Law Reform Task Force Thursday, August 18, 2016 in Bend for the task force’s fourth public hearing. The public hearing is an opportunity for Oregonians to provide input on Oregon’s Public Records Laws and the work of the task force.

The task force was formed by Attorney General Rosenblum in September 2015 as a way to promote greater transparency in government. Its purpose is to review and recommend specific improvements to Oregon’s public records laws. So far, the task force has focused on establishing deadlines for public bodies to respond to requests for records, and on addressing the more than 500 exemptions from public disclosure. The task force will also examine the fees that public bodies may charge for records, and consider whether the state should create a Public Records Advocate.

All members of the media and the public are welcome to attend and testify. Comments can also be emailed to the task force at
