public records request rules.
Monday, May 22, 2017 – 2
Call-in number: 1-888-273-3658;
access code: 3125235
Oregon Department of Energy
550 Capitol St NE
Salem, Oregon 97301
Public Hearing Materials:
The draft changes to rule were prompted by Governor Brown’s Executive Order No. 16-06 and DAS Statewide Policy No. 107-001-030. ODOE’s proposed amendments will align our public records request rules with DAS policy, removing duplicative language covered by the DAS policy relating to fees. The proposed amendments also update requirements; add a requirement for a requester to provide an email address; and propose repealing the department’s rule on charges for computer information requests, which is covered under the general public records request rule and does not need a separate rule.
ODOE will accept oral testimony on the rules at the public hearing. Participants unable to attend may call in to provide oral comments. Written comments on the rulemaking are due by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, May 22, 2017, and may be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The public hearing will be the final opportunity for comment
before ODOE files permanent rules in late May. ODOE plans for the rules to be
effective upon filing.
