In the 2002 Legislative Session, SSB 6439 (Chapter 335, Laws of 2002) established exemptions from public disclosure for records related to preventing terrorist acts and for information related to the infrastructure and security of computer and telecommunication networks.  JLARC is to review the impact of these exemptions on agency performance in responding to requests for public records under public disclosure.  We conclude that the impact has been negligible: the volume of requests and denials covered by these exemptions has been very low, resulting in very little impact on agencies' workload.
