“Working alongside talented individuals like Hope Hicks, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Mercedes Schlapp, I am looking forward to building on the team’s success of communicating the President’s message at the state and local level.
I am committed to educating government officials, journalists and all Arkansans about the law to ensure our citizens have access to public information.” "The FOIA Handbook has for many years been a handy reference for Arkansas's elected and appointed officials and for custodians of public records who have responsibilities under the state's Freedom of Information Act," said Tom Larimer, executive director of the Arkansas Press Association.
"We are happy to again partner with the Office of the Arkansas Attorney General in producing this guide to the FOIA, and in promoting transparency in government at all levels in Arkansas." The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act was enacted by the General Assembly in 1967 after a strong push from a coalition of citizens and journalists and with the support of then-Gov. The bill passed the House and Senate without a dissenting vote. Rockefeller later reflected that passage of the FOIA was one of the most significant achievements of his time in office.
