Information

 

From Texas Civil Rights Project:

 

In Texas, there are two laws that make most government documents available to citizens. The Texas Public Information Act (PIA) requires state and local governments to make information public. The federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires the federal government to do the same thing. Citizens do not need lawyers to use these laws. The PIA and FOIA make information public, but there are some exceptions.
