Description

Freedom of information is essential for government accountability and for a healthy democracy. Unfortunately, the Massachusetts Public Records Law has not been substantially updated since 1973. Since then, it’s become more difficult for the public to obtain public records: the costs can be high, and responses to requests are often untimely.
