Welcome to PAR’s
Sunshine Headquarters Portal!
This portal is designed to serve as a guide and resource to citizens about Louisiana's Sunshine Laws. Statutes that require government agencies to do their work in public are called “sunshine laws.” These laws typically govern public records and meetings. Each state has their own sunshine laws. Federal government agencies must follow the “Federal Freedom of Information Act.”
This site provides quizzes to test your knowledge of Sunshine Laws, templates for public records requests and open meeting complaints, as well as fact sheets on Sunshine Laws.
We hope you will find this page useful. We welcome your feedback. If there is additional information that would improve this site, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
We especially would like to thank our funders, the Open Society Foundation, the IMPACT Program at the Greater New Orleans Foundation and a grant from the John S. And James L. Knight Foundation through the National Freedom of Information Coalition.
