Texas Government Code, Chapter 552
gives you the right to access government records; and an officer for public information and/or the officer’s agent may not ask why you want them.
All government information is presumed to be available to the public. Certain exceptions may apply to the disclosure of the information. The Attorney General has provided answers to the most frequently asked questions
about the Public Information Act.
Governmental bodies shall promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory, or by judicial decision, or information for which an exception to disclosure has not been sought.
