Freedom Of Information Handbook


Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and the Arkansas Press Association have published the 18th edition of the Freedom of Information Act Handbook, which is now available online and in print.

“This edition of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act Handbook updates changes made to the law by the General Assembly in 2017,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “I take great pride in knowing that the Arkansas FOIA is one of the most comprehensive at fostering open government in the country. I am committed to educating government officials, journalists and all Arkansans about the law to ensure our citizens have access to public information.”

“The FOIA Handbook has for many years been a handy reference for Arkansas’s elected and appointed officials and for custodians of public records who have responsibilities under the state’s Freedom of Information Act,” said Tom Larimer, executive director of the Arkansas Press Association. “We are happy to again partner with the Office of the Arkansas Attorney General in producing this guide to the FOIA, and in promoting transparency in government at all levels in Arkansas.”  MORE
