GOVERNMENT DATA REQUESTS

 

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, FOIA requests grant the public and media rights to access records held by government departments.  In Minnesota, data requests are governed by Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13, for public data.  Depending on the type of information you seek, it can be challenging to navigate the process by which to request government data and to ultimately get the information that you request.
