Commissioner's review of denials of public records requests.

(1) Any person who objects to the written denial of a request for a public record may petition for prompt review of such decision by tendering a written request for review to the records officer, or other staff member denying the request. The written request shall specifically refer to the written statement by the records officer, or other staff member, which constituted or accompanied the written denial.
(2) Immediately after receiving a written request for review of a decision denying a public record, the records officer, or other staff member denying the request, shall refer it to the commissioner of the employment security department. The commissioner shall immediately consider the matter and either affirm or reverse such written denial. In any case, the request shall be returned with a final decision, within two business days following the original written denial.
(3) Administrative remedies shall not be considered exhausted until the employment security department has returned the petition with a decision or until the close of the second business day following denial of inspection, whichever occurs first.
