CHAPTER 61.  PUBLIC ACCESS TO PUBLIC RECORDS

Miss. Code Ann. § 25-61-2  (2017)

25-61-2. State policy regarding access to public records

It is the policy of this state that public records shall be available for inspection by any person unless otherwise provided by this chapter; furthermore, providing access to public records is a duty of each public body and automation of public records must not erode the right of access to those records. As each public body increases its use of, and dependence on, electronic record keeping, each public body must ensure reasonable access to records electronically maintained, subject to records retention.
