Public Records Request
Rulemaking Hearing Notice
The purpose of this rulemaking is to broaden Rule 0400-01-01-.01 for managing public records to incorporate all of the elements required by Tennessee Code Annotated section 10-7-503(g). The Department had previously adopted a public records policy effective June 30, 2017. The proposed rule incorporates the required elements of this existing policy, and also addresses aggregation of multiple records requests, copying records with personal equipment, and sufficient identification of records.
These rules were filed with the Secretary of State on March 6, 2019. The rules will be effective June 4, 2019.
