HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania’s main open records law is getting some revisions but the proposed amendments aren’t expected to go before lawmakers in the coming months.

The Senate State Government Committee voted unanimously on Wednesday to impose new public reporting requirements on Penn State, Pitt, Lincoln and Temple, which as state-related schools aren’t fully subject to the Right-to-Know Law.

The proposal would mandate that they post financial data online and that schools with at least 2,500 workers report their top 200 employee salaries. Lincoln University is the only one that wouldn’t meet that standard.

Another change made to the bill would establish a new fee structure for commercial records requests and exempt media requests from those costs. It would also severely restrict how and when inmates would be allowed to make requests.
