CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Secretary of State's Office has scrubbed plans to charge fees to obtain public filings for businesses and organizations.

The Charleston Gazette ( reports the change scheduled to begin Sept. 4 was rescinded by Secretary of State Natalie Tennant's office Thursday.

Tennant says she'll continue looking into the fee proposal

The new fees had called for a $5 charge to have a document sent by email and $10 to have a document faxed. For printed versions obtained by mail or picked up in person, it would have been $1 for the first page and 50 cents for each page thereafter.

The fee proposal came after some entities requested a large amount of documents at one time after online records were removed from the Secretary of State's website in June.
