In Louisiana, anyone 18 years or older has the right to examine, copy or obtain a copy of a public record (unless specifically exempted) of any public body, including state, parish or municipal agency or board. Generally, anything “having been used, being in use or prepared” for use in the conduct of public business is a public record, regardless of physical form. Public records include such things as drafts of documents, statistics, maps, letters, memos, budget requests, budgets, tapes, electronic data, payrolls, certain retirement information and tax assessment rolls. The public records law does, however, exempt certain records.
