Dear Ms. Nikodym:

You ask this office to reconsider Open Records Letter No. 99-2336 (1999). Your request was assigned ID# 129997.

The Seventy-sixth Legislature amended section 552.301 of the Public Information Act (the "act") to provide that a governmental body is prohibited from asking for a reconsideration of the attorney general's decision. Act of May 25, 1999, 76th Leg., R.S., ch. 1319, 20, 1999 Tex. Sess. Law Serv. 4500, 4508 (Vernon) (to be codified at Gov't Code 552.301(f)). Although the governmental body has not asked us to reconsider the decision in this instance, we similarly decline your request to reconsider Open Records Letter No. 99-2336

We note that you inform us that the contract has been awarded. Section 552.104 of the Government Code is temporal in nature and does not apply once the contract has been awarded. Thus, you may wish to submit a new request for the information to the San Antonio Independent School District.

If you have any questions regarding this letter, please contact our Open Government Hotline at (877) 673-6839.
