The intent of the Arkansas FOIA is to provide access to information in an open and public government, one of the hallmarks of a democratic society. On February 14, 1967, Arkansas adopted one of the strongest and most comprehensive Freedom of Information Acts in the nation. It gives our citizens an opportunity to look at a broad array of information at every level of government and to observe the actions of our government leaders. It also promotes and protects the right of individuals to attend the meetings of policy-making, tax supported bodies.
The FOIA is the people's law, and as the people's lawyer, I feel that it is vital for us to be as well informed about the workings of our government as we can be.
