This is the publication you need to enforce the general right of public access to government records and proceedings in Arkansas. Enacted in 1967 and amended many times over the ensuing years, the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) establishes a right of public access to government records and meetings. This publication is intended as a roadmap to the Act for public officials, who administer it; lawyers and judges, who interpret and apply it; and perhaps most importantly members of the public, academia, and the news media, who use it.
