Legislative leaders demand $9K to release redistricting records to Dems

GOP offers to pay bill, but Dems refuse, say it’s not about money.

< Previous Page

The Salt Lake Tribune attempted that and sought free access to inspect the records Monday.

Legislative General Counsel John Fellows denied the request. He said while the law allows free access to documents, it also makes that subject to paying applicable research fees. He said the Legislature contends that someone first must pay the $9,250 in processing fees owed, and then free access and copying may be allowed to all.

Legislature attorneys also previously denied a written Tribune fee waiver request for electronic copies of the records. The paper has appealed that ruling.
