The Judiciary Committee of Rhode Island’s Senate approved a bill that would require records custodians to release requested public records within seven days. There had been a 10-day limit. Police would have 24-hours to release incident reports. The only opposition came from Attorney General Patrick Lynch, who said it could hurt criminal investigations, although it had the support of the Rhode Island Police cChiefs Association. (5/2/08)
