About Arkansas Open Public Records

The Arkansas FOIA provides the citizens of Arkansas open access to the conduct of the public's business at every level of government. There have been several amendments to the Arkansas FOIA since being signed into law and as of 2010 there are eighteen exemptions added to the original law.
