64. Open Records Laws

64. Open Records Laws

“The free press is the mother of all our liberties and of our progress under liberty.” –Adlai Stevenson

Open records laws are the foundational principle under which journalists can gather information about the government.

Every state has slightly different laws for acquiring this information, and to understand journalism you need to have some idea about how they work. You can get a detailed description of each state’s law from the Open Government Guide, a website published by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.
