This is in response to your fax that we received.

Our Tennessee public records statute, Tenn. Code Ann. ยง 10-7-503, limits access to public records to Tennessee citizens. The relevant language reads: "All state, county and municipal records, shall at all times during business open for personal inspection by any citizen of Tennessee..." Id. At subsec. (2)(a). If you are a resident of the state of Tennessee please forward me a copy of a valid Tennessee driver's license. Once we receive confirmation of Tennessee residency, we will process your request. If you are not a resident, we are unable to comply with your request.

Also, all request for open records should be sent to<>.

Thank you.
