Information Request

The Texas Public Information Act (Texas Government Code, Chapter 552), gives you the right to access government records; the officer for public information may not ask you why you want them. All government information is presumed to be available to the public, although certain exceptions may apply. Governmental bodies shall release the requested information as promptly as possible unless the information is exempt from disclosure under the Public Information Act.
