§342J-14 Public records; confidential information; penalties. (a) For purposes of this chapter, chapter 92F applies to the determination of the types of information that should be made available to members of the public provided that any information that would be required to be disclosed under RCRA and the federal Freedom of Information Act, 5 United States Code §552, if these Acts were applicable, shall be open to the public notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in chapter 92F. The legislature declares that disclosure of such information which RCRA and the federal Freedom of Information Act require to be disclosed for purposes of this chapter does not constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy.
(b) Information concerning secret processes or methods of manufacture maintained by an agency pursuant to this chapter shall not be disclosed to the public unless disclosure of such information would be required under applicable provisions of RCRA, 42 United States Code, §§6901 to 6991i and the federal Freedom of Information Act, 5 United States Code §552.
(c) For purposes of this chapter, the department may adopt rules pertaining to both substantive and procedural aspects of information practices which are consistent with RCRA and the federal Freedom of Information Act. These rules shall govern information practices concerning all records maintained by any agency pursuant to this chapter or RCRA and shall supersede any inconsistent rules promulgated pursuant to chapter 92F.
