Why do we let our government keep these secrets from us?

The State

The Legislature updated our Freedom of Information Act this year to make it tougher for cities, counties, school boards and state agencies to get away with keeping public information secret.


Our mission

PAPR is dedicated to shining a light on the actions of South Carolina public officials and agencies. Our mission is to promote public access to public records, as well as protect and strengthen the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act and other public disclosure laws that enable citizens to fully exercise their right to know how their government works on their behalf.
