The Citizen's Guide to the Open Public Records Act (OPRA) has been prepared by the Government Records Council to help the public understand the requirements of the State of New Jersey's Open Public Records Act (N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq.).  This guide is intended to familiarize those who want access to public records of their rights and of the responsibilities of public agencies that hold records, but is not to serve as a legal reference.
