Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Information

The Freedom of Information Act permits inspection of public records created and maintained by public bodies. Public bodies include state agencies, county and municipal governments, offices, and boards, and some non-government bodies that are funded with government monies.

The Secretary of State maintains an online database where the public can view basic information about completed FOIA requests. However, the actual records responsive to each request are not hosted in the database.

All public bodies are required to report information about completed requests on every 10th day of each month after the request is complete.
