(Olympia, WA)  --  It could cost more to get electronic copies of records in Washington, under a bill that's on its way to the governor.  Government agencies can already charge up to 15 cents per page for photocopying documents in response to public records requests, but the bill says agencies will be allowed to charge up to ten cents per page for scanned documents and up to five cents for every four electronic attachments.  Supporters of the bill say it's intended to reduce what they say are excessive public-records requests.  It would also allow agencies to deny broad requests for all of their records, as well as some repetitive requests automatically generated by computer bots.
