From: Department of Corrections

Good morning,

I am acknowledging the attached public records request. Please be advised that our records indicate we did not receive the same request in 2018 as you indicated. The request has been passed along to legal custodians and I will contact you should there be further clarifications needed.

Please also be advised that "Continuing" requests are not contemplated by the public records law. The right of access applies only to records that exist at the time the request is made, and the law contemplates custodial decisions being made with respect to a specific request at the time the request is made. The Attorney General has long interpreted this status as not requiring a record custodian to honor prospective continuing requests for records.

Thank you,

Clare
