Freedom of Information Act

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a state statute (5 ILCS 140/1) that provides the public access to government documents and records. The law provides that a person can ask a public body for a copy of its records and the public body must provide those records, unless there is an exemption in the statute that protects those records from disclosure.
