HB606 Passes Legislature; Awaits Governor’s Signature; Prohibits Charging for Electronic Records

Last week the New Hampshire House and Senate agreed to a conference committee amendment to HB606 that adds language to RSA 91-A (the “Right to Know” law) that clarifies that no money may be charged for inspecting or delivering (i.e., emailing) electronic copies of public documents.

91-A 4:IV No fee shall be charged for the inspection or delivery, without copying, of governmental records, whether in paper, electronic, or other form.

The bill now goes to Governor Hassan to be signed into law.

The Tuftonboro selectmen will need to update the town’s official policy. However, since the town has not been charging any fees for the delivery of electronic copies, in practice nothing will need to change.
