It appears the changes were used by Gov. Scott Walker's administration as a reason not to release records just one day after the action was taken in August by the board, which oversees the preservation and handling of government records.  
On Aug. 25, the day after the board's vote, the Walker administration said it didn't have text messages requested by a newspaper, adding that officials do not have to retain such transitory messages.
