A new video series has been published by http://www.FOGWatch.org and is now available on-line. This video series “Your Right To Know: A Primer On Florida’s Public Records Act” is available free of charge and is intended to be a resource for citizens, the media, public agencies and government contractors.

The series is divided into two sections (The Basics of Public Records Access and A Brief History of Public Records Access In Florida) and eleven parts for a total of just over 68 minutes.

Section 1 The Basics of Public Records Access provides an overview of what the Public Records Act permits citizens and the media to have access to and the basic obligations of public officials in responding to a public records request. Section 2 A Brief History of Public Records Access In Florida discusses, among other things, important public records cases and how those decisions impact the public’s right of access.
