How the Texas Public Information Act Works


The Texas Public Information Act (the "Act") gives the public the right 
to request access to government records.  The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to a governmental body.  The request must ask for records or information already in existence. The Act DOES NOT require the governmental body to:
 
  • Create New Information
  • Compile Data
  • Do Legal Research
  • Answer Questions

The governmental body shall promptly respond to requests for information with either the records sought or some other form of notification no later than the 10th business day from which the request was received.  A person may ask to view the information, get copies
of the information or both.  If the request is for copies, the governmental body may charge for the copies.
