Update on Department of Retirement Systems public records request 

The Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) has advised that on Dec. 18, 2019, the Thurston County Superior Court issued an order temporarily restraining certain state agencies, including the Department of Retirement Systems, from releasing information in response to a public records request DRS received for certain items of information “for each person currently employed by a public employer in Washington.” 

The court has scheduled a hearing on Dec. 27, 2019, to determine if the order should be made permanent. A copy of the order is available here. Read more on the DRS website. For information or questions, contact DRS at 844-704-6780 or drs.pdrnotice@drs.wa.gov.
