The Mission of the Office of Open Records is to implement and enforce the state’s Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) and serve as a source for citizens, agencies, public officials and members of the media in obtaining public records of their government. As part of that mission, the Office of Open Records has developed this Citizens’ Guide to the RTKL, providing a basic overview.
