Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
The Freedom of Information Act is the principal Illinois law governing the inspection of public records. It is a pro-disclosure statute that was originally enacted on July 1, 1984. This open government law is grounded
in the principle that the public should be able to access public records and information concerning the workings of their government. Open and honest government is one of the cornerstones of American democracy and it can only be achieved through the free exchange of information between government and its citizens. The Freedom of Information Act is a critical tool that citizens can use to illuminate their knowledge concerning government practices.
