Iowa Gov. Chet Culver, whose office recently received two requests for extensive selections of e-mails from the Des Moines Register, has advised state agencies to begin charging records requesters the cost of having an attorney review the documents sought. The policy change could prove expensive for those seeking public records. The governor’s office told the Register one of its requests would cost more than $20,000. (5/6/08)
