The Data Practices Act does not deal with “records” but rather with “data,” — more specifically, “government data,” which is defined as information “collected, created, received, maintained or disseminated by any state agency, political subdivision, or statewide system regardless of its physical form, storage media or conditions of use.” Minn. Stat. § 13.02, subd. 7. All government data is subject to the act “regardless of its physical form.” Thus, data in electronic formats is covered by the act.
