Texas Public Information Act

Home » Texas Public Information Act


The Texas Public Information Act allows the public the right to request access to government information.  All persons who request information must do so by submitting a written request that includes enough description and detail of the information you are requesting allowing the government body to accurately identify and locate the items which you are requesting.  The request must be for records or information that already exists.  The Public Information Act does not require a governmental body to create new records, perform legal research or to answer legal questions.  The requestor may ask to view the records, get copies of the records or both.  Although most government information is available under the Act, some exceptions exist.
