Public Records Request Information

*Pursuant to Governor’s Proclamation 20-28 (COVID-19), the in-person inspections of records and in-person submissions of requests have been suspended. Public record requests can still be submitted through this website. Additionally, Governor’s Proclamation 20-28 suspends the statutory five business day initial response timeline under RCW 42.56 for requests received by mail. Due to necessary staffing measures taken in response to the national public health crisis, please note that our Public Records Unit may not be able to provide requestors an initial response within five business days for those requests received by mail.

Reminder: General questions do not require a public records request. For information about the Washington State Legislature and the legislative process, visit the Legislative Information Center or call (360) 786-7573.
