PAC Finds Violation for Failure to Respond to FOIA Request

Last week, the PAC issued its final binding opinion for 2017. In PAC Op. 17-015, the PAC found the Governor's office in violation of FOIA for failing to respond to a FOIA request for a copy of a log of all FOIA requests received from July to September of 2017. The Governor's office did not respond to the FOIA request, nor to the PAC's request for review, and the PAC found the office in violation of FOIA. No new guidance to assist public bodies in this opinion beyond the obvious - that public bodies have an obligation to respond to FOIA requests.
