Takko looking to shield agencies from costly records requests
Longview state legislator Dean Takko has introduced a bill (HB 1128) that would allow government agencies to avoid releasing public records if they can prove the task of compiling them is too expensive.
Takko, a Democrat who heads the House Local Government Committee, said the bill is intended to ease the burden of complying with frivolous records requests that eat up hours of manpower and tens of thousands of dollars. Many of these requests, Takko said, are intended to harass agencies rather than encourage open government.

Dean Takko says he knows the pains that local governments are going through when they're dealing with their own budgets. As a retired Cowlitz County Assessor, Takko oversaw his own department budget and knew the delicate balancing act counties do to prioritize their spending.
Takko has been in the state House since 2005 and, since that time, he's tried to be an advocate for county and city governments. In fact, the 62-year-old now sits as the chair of the House Local Government Committee.
"When we're dealing with local governments, I look at it not as a partisan issue and people know I'll work with both sides of the aisle," Takko said
Takko's top priorities are dealing with rural economic development, supporting timber and fishing industries, and producing a sustainable budget.
As a member of the House Transportation Committee, Takko helped shepherd legislation critical to continuing construction of pontoons in Aberdeen. Without the legislature intervening and approving an exemption to the Shoreline Management Act in the wake of environmental appeals that ultimately were rejected, the project would have grounded to a halt.
Takko also worked on gun rights legislation this past session, trying to protect existing shooting ranges from nuisance complaints, although the bill didn't get approved.
Takko was the Assessor at Cowlitz County until 2004, although he had worked in the office since 1978. He also worked at the Wahkiakum County Assessor's Office for three years.
Besides being a legislator, he also served as a commissioner for the Beacon Hill Sewer District, a position he's held since 1984.
