What are the fees relating to a public records request?
There is no fee for inspection of records, unless those records must be redacted. CDCR shall make the records promptly available upon payment of fees covering the direct costs of the duplication. CDCR charges 12 cents per page plus actual postage costs for copies of public records. (See 15 CCR 3260.1) Also, CDCR may charge for expenses incurred from extracting electronic data or programming a computer to retrieve public documents. There is no exception for indigent requesters, such as inmates.
