Reporting Network Doc Squad
April 20: This post has been corrected.
Do you live in Tennessee, Virginia or Arkansas? If so, we need your occasional help in getting documents from your state government. These states have adopted laws that restrict freedom of information requests to state citizens only – even if federal tax money is involved.
Sign up here and we'll let you know when you can be of help. Tennesseans, you're up first! We’ve got a document request that needs your assistance. No experience necessary. We’ll guide you through the process.
Correction: This post mistakenly included Delaware and Georgia among the states that currently restrict public records access for people of out-of-state.
