          What is the Open Public Records Act(OPRA)?

    The Open Public Records Act or OPRA is a state law designed to increase the public's ability to view and obtain copies of government records maintained by public agencies within the State.  It also sets the procedure for the public to register a complaint when a request for the access to government records is denied.
    A "government record" is defined as a physical record that has been generated, maintained, or received by a public agency in the course of official business.
    More information about OPRA can be obtained from the Government Records Council online at www.nj.gov/grc, or by mail at PO Box 819, Trenton, NJ 08625, via a toll-free hotline:866-850-0511, or via email at: grc@dca.state.nj.us
