How to Request Public Information
Requesting public information is simple. Here's what you need to know to make a successful Public Information Act (PIA) request.
A public information request must be in writing to the governmental body you believe maintains the information. However, your written request needs to be for information already in existence. A governmental body is not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or create new information in response to your public information request.
- Effective September 1, 2019, pursuant to section 552.234 of the Government Code, a person may make a request for public information only by delivering the request by one of the following methods to the governmental body’s public information officer or the officer’s designee:
- United States mail;
- electronic mail;
hand delivery; or
any other method approved by the governmental body.
