PA Office of Open Records Right-to-Know Law

On Feb. 14, 2008, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania adopted Act 3 of 2008 to substantially amend Pennsylvania's public records law, known as the "Right-to-Know Law," which has governed the records request protocol for Commonwealth and local agencies since 1957.

Pursuant to the revised law, a record is defined as follows:

 "Information, regardless of physical form or characteristics, that documents a transaction or activity of an agency that is created, received or retained pursuant to law or in connection with a transaction, business or activity of the agency. The term includes a document, paper, letter, map, book, tape, photograph, film or sound recording, information stored or maintained electronically and a data-processed or image-processed document."
