Dear Mr. Birnbaum:

You ask this office to reconsider Open Records Letter No. 00-1615 (2000). Your request was assigned ID# 136779.

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. 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. 136779.

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