Open Government

Florida is proud to lead the nation in providing public access to government meetings and records. This website is designed to help government agencies, the media and private citizens understand Florida’s Open Government and Public Records laws.

Government must be accountable to the people. The Florida Constitution, which sets forth our rights as citizens of this great state, provides that the public has the right to know how government officials spend taxpayer dollars and make the decisions affecting their lives. The principle of open government is one that must guide everything done in government for its public.


The Attorney General’s Mediation Program assists in resolving public access disputes. For additional information on Open Government and public records, please call 850-245-0140.

In Florida, transparency is not up to the whim or grace of public officials. Instead, it is an enforceable right.
— Attorney General Pam Bondi
