GRC Statement Released on OPRA Response Time Reversion

Government Records Council (GRC), Executive Director Frank Caruso issued a Special Statement this week regarding the signing of P.L. 2021, c.103, which resulted in the termination of the State’s COVID-19 public health emergency and reinstated the statutory response time frame under the Open Public Records Act (OPRA).

The Special Statement reminds records custodians that they should return to responding to OPRA requests under the statutory time frames. An exception to this when a requestor is seeking records directly related to an agency’s COVID-19 response.

We suggest that you review this Special Statement with your municipal clerk and municipal attorney for more information, and to ensure compliance with OPRA.

Contact: Frank Marshall, Esq., Associate General Counsel, fmarshall@njlm.org, 609-695-3481, x137.
