Below are questions asked and answered by MuckRock users about Freedom of Information Act and public records requests from all fifty states. Have a public records problem of your own? Register for an account and ask today or show off your FOIA-jitsu by answering others' questions. Please keep questions general enough that others can find the answers i.e. "How do I appeal information exempted under (b)(2)?" rather than "Why was my request rejected?". This way this resource becomes more useful for everyone.
