The Open Government Guide is a complete compendium of information on every state’s open records and open meetings laws. Each state’s section is arranged according to a standard outline, making it easy to compare laws in various states. If you’re a new user of this guide, be sure to read the Introduction to the Open Government Guide. The Open Government Guide covers state laws. We also have a separate FOIA Wiki that covers the federal government.
Please note: We have not yet received the following chapters from our guide authors: Alabama, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. You can find the 2011 guides for those states here.
