Utah Freedom of Information

In Utah, freedom of information is provided under the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA).  It is a series of laws designed to guarantee that the public has access to the public records of government bodies at all levels in Utah.

Furthermore, the Utah Open and Public Meetings Act provides the methods by which public meetings are conducted.  Title 52, chapter 4 of the Utah Code defines the law.  The statement of purpose of the Open Meetings Act states, “the Legislature finds and declares that the state, its agencies and political subdivisions, exist to aid in the conduct of the people’s business.  It is the intent of the Legislature that the state, its agencies, and its political subdivisions take their actions openly; and conduct their deliberations openly.”
