Indiana Freedom of Information

In Indiana, freedom of information is provided under the Indiana Access to Public Records Act and the Indiana Open Door Law.  The Indiana Access to Public Records Act under §5-14-3-1 to 10 et seq is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to public records of government bodies at all levels in Indiana.  Furthermore, the Indiana Open Door Law under I.C. §5-14-1.5-1 to 8 et seq legislates the methods by which public meetings are conducted. Pursuant to the law, “it is the intent of the chapter that the official action of public agencies be conducted and taken openly, unless otherwise expressly provided by statute, in order that the people may be fully informed.”
