The Office of Open Records (OOR) will conduct its annual training on the Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) (65 P. S. §§ 67.101—67.3104) and 65 Pa.C.S. §§ 701—716 (relating to Sunshine Act) on October 24, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the State Museum Auditorium, 621 North 3rd Street, Harrisburg, PA 17120-0300.
Representatives from the OOR will discuss OOR appeal procedures and timeframes set forth in the RTKL. The discussion will focus on various exemptions to the presumption that governmental records are public and what to expect during the appeal process before the OOR. The interplay between the Sunshine Act and RTKL will also be discussed. An overview of recent Commonwealth Court rulings, current trends and OOR decisions impacting the RTKL and access to government records will be provided. Finally, ample opportunity will be provided for attendees to ask questions regarding the RTKL.
The training is free and open to everyone, including citizens, public officials, agency open records officers, attorneys and members of the media. Registration by October 19, 2012, is recommended as seating is limited. Registration forms are available at http://openrecords. state.pa.us.
