Right to Know

In 2008, Pennsylvania’s Right to Know Law was passed. The objective of this law is to empower citizens by affording them access to information concerning the activities of their government.  The law is designed to promote access to official government information to prohibit secrets, scrutinize the actions of public officials, and make public officials and agencies accountable for their actions.
