• Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

    The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), , guarantees citizens of the Commonwealth and representatives of the media access to public records held by public bodies, public officials, and public employees.

    A public record is any writing or recording — regardless of whether it is a paper record, an electronic file, an audio or video recording, or any other format — that is prepared by, owned by, or in the possession of a public body or its officers, employees, or agents in the transaction of public business. All public records are presumed to be open, and may only be withheld if a specific, statutory exemption applies.

    The purpose of FOIA is to promote an increased awareness by all persons of governmental activities. In furthering this policy, FOIA requires that the law be interpreted liberally, in favor of access, and that any exemption allowing public records to be withheld must be interpreted narrowly. 新加坡六合彩开奖直播 has adopted and regulations as outlined in to address FOIA.
