(b) The responsible authority shall prepare public access
procedures in written form and update them no later than August
1 of each year as necessary to reflect any changes in personnel
or circumstances that might affect public access to government
data. The responsible authority shall make copies of the
written public access procedures easily available to the public

Sec. 8.

Minnesota Statutes 2004, section 13.03,
subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

Request for access to data.

(a) Upon request to
a responsible authority or designee, a person shall be permitted
to inspect and copy public government data at reasonable times
and places, and, upon request, shall be informed of the data's
meaning. If a person requests access for the purpose of
inspection, the responsible authority may not assess a charge or
require the requesting person to pay a fee to inspect data.

(b) For purposes of this section, "inspection" includes,
but is not limited to, the visual inspection of paper and
similar types of government data. Inspection does not include
printing copies by the government entity, unless printing a copy
is the only method to provide for inspection of the data. In
the case of data stored in electronic form and made available in
electronic form on a remote access basis to the public by the
government entity, inspection includes remote access to the data
by the public and the ability to print copies of or download the
data on the public's own computer equipment. Nothing in this
section prohibits a government entity from charging a reasonable
fee for remote access to data under a specific statutory grant
of authority. A government entity may charge a fee for remote
access to data where either the data or the access is enhanced
at the request of the person seeking access.

(c) The responsible authority or designee shall provide
copies of public data upon request. If a person requests copies
or electronic transmittal of the data to the person, the
responsible authority may require the requesting person to pay
the actual costs of searching for and retrieving government
data, including the cost of employee time, and for making,
certifying, compiling, and electronically transmitting the
copies of the data or the data, but may not charge for
separating public from not public data. new text beginHowever, if 100 or
fewer pages of black and white, letter or legal size paper
copies are requested, actual costs shall not be used, and
instead, the responsible authority may charge no more than 25
cents for each page copied.
new text endIf the responsible authority or
designee is not able to provide copies at the time a request is
made, copies shall be supplied as soon as reasonably possible.

(d) When a request under this subdivision involves any
person's receipt of copies of public government data that has
commercial value and is a substantial and discrete portion of or
an entire formula, pattern, compilation, program, device,
method, technique, process, database, or system developed with a
significant expenditure of public funds by the deleted text beginagency deleted text endnew text begingovernment
entity
new text end, the responsible authority may charge a reasonable fee
for the information in addition to the costs of making,
certifying, and compiling the copies. Any fee charged must be
clearly demonstrated by the deleted text beginagency deleted text endnew text begingovernment entity new text endto relate
to the actual development costs of the information. The
responsible authority, upon the request of any person, shall
provide sufficient documentation to explain and justify the fee
being charged.

(e) The responsible authority of a deleted text beginstate agency, statewide
system, or political subdivision
deleted text endnew text begingovernment entity new text endthat
maintains public government data in a computer storage medium
shall provide to any person making a request under this section
a copy of any public data contained in that medium, in
electronic form, if the government entity can reasonably make
the copy or have a copy made. This does not require a
government entity to provide the data in an electronic format or
program that is different from the format or program in which
the data are maintained by the government entity. The entity
may require the requesting person to pay the actual cost of
providing the copy.

(f) If the responsible authority or designee determines
that the requested data is classified so as to deny the
requesting person access, the responsible authority or designee
shall inform the requesting person of the determination either
orally at the time of the request, or in writing as soon after
that time as possible, and shall cite the specific statutory
section, temporary classification, or specific provision of
federal law on which the determination is based. Upon the
request of any person denied access to data, the responsible
authority or designee shall certify in writing that the request
has been denied and cite the specific statutory section,
temporary classification, or specific provision of federal law
upon which the denial was based.

Sec. 9.

Minnesota Statutes 2004, section 13.03,

required to do so to comply with either judicial or
administrative rules pertaining to the conduct of legal actions
or with a specific statute applicable to the data in the
possession of the disseminating or receiving deleted text beginagency deleted text endnew text beginentitynew text end.

(b) If data on individuals is classified as both private
and confidential by this chapter, or any other statute or
federal law, the data is private.

deleted text begin state agencies, political subdivisions, or statewide systems deleted text endnew text begina
government entity
new text endby another deleted text beginstate agency, political

deleted text endnew text begingovernment
entity
new text endopposes discovery of government data or release of data
pursuant to court order on the grounds that the data are
classified as not public, the party that seeks access to the
data may bring before the appropriate presiding judicial
officer, arbitrator, or administrative law judge an action to
compel discovery or an action in the nature of an action to
compel discovery.

The presiding officer shall first decide whether the data
are discoverable or releasable pursuant to the rules of evidence
and of criminal, civil, or administrative procedure appropriate
to the action.

If the data are discoverable the presiding officer shall
decide whether the benefit to the party seeking access to the
data outweighs any harm to the confidentiality interests of the
deleted text begin agency deleted text endnew text beginentity new text endmaintaining the data, or of any person who has
provided the data or who is the subject of the data, or to the
privacy interest of an individual identified in the data. In
making the decision, the presiding officer shall consider
whether notice to the subject of the data is warranted and, if
warranted, what type of notice must be given. The presiding
officer may fashion and issue any protective orders necessary to
assure proper handling of the data by the parties. If the data
are a videotape of a child victim or alleged victim alleging,
explaining, denying, or describing an act of physical or sexual
abuse, the presiding officer shall consider the provisions of
section 611A.90, subdivision 2, paragraph (b).

new text end or ten years after the data was received or collected by any
governmental deleted text beginagency deleted text endnew text beginentity new text endunless the responsible authority for

reasonably determines that, if the data were made available to
the public or to the data subject, the harm to the public or to
a data subject would outweigh the benefit to the public or to
the data subject. If the responsible authority denies access to
the data, the person denied access may challenge the denial by
bringing an action in district court seeking release of the
data. The action shall be brought in the district court located
in the county where the data are being maintained, or, in the
case of data maintained by a state agency, in any county. The
data in dispute shall be examined by the court in camera. In
deciding whether or not to release the data, the court shall
consider the benefits and harms in the same manner as set forth
above. The court shall make a written statement of findings in
support of its decision.
