    Question of the Day!
Answer

The Massachusetts Public Records Law parallels the Federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The federal FOIA is a statute that applies to federal records. The Massachusetts Public Records Law applies to records created by or in the custody of a state or local agency, board or other government entity. All such records including photographs, memos, books, papers, maps, recorded tapes, financial statements, statistical tabulations, or other documentary materials or data are considered public information in Massachusetts, unless they are withheld from public view under an exemption permitted under the law. See A Guide to the Massachusetts Public Records Law.
