Alaska Charges $200 Hourly for Document Requests

LANDSDOWNE, Va. — As it turns out, making photo copies for the state of Alaska is good work, if you can get it.

A few weeks ago, while reporting from Alaska, I filed a request for all of the resumes submitted for the governor’s consideration for appointments to boards and committees. I heard back Friday afternoon that it would cost TWI $1,063.20 to get the 400 resumes, at a cost of about $193 per hour.

Palin’s administration estimates it will take about five hours to fill my request, plus $96.30 for photocopies — a reasonable 10-cent per copy fee.

To be sure, the fee isn’t close to the whopping $15 million Palin’s administration told The Associated Press it would cost to track down the governor’s email, but still, a person making $193 an hour would make $7,720 per week or roughly $400,000 a year — about two and a half times what the governor is paid.

I was inspired to request the resumes after taking a look at Lewis D. Bradley’s, the man Palin appointed to the Board of Game. Bradley was Palin’s midde-school basketball coach.

Palin has appointed other friends to cushy or important positions in her administration, including naming one friend to run the multi-billion-dollar Permanent Fund Dividend program.

I’m waiting to hear back from the office of administration in Alaska on when I’ll receive the resumes before we consider whether to shell out the money for the copies.
