Under Federal FOIA laws, you don't even have to be a citizen to file a FOIA request.

Subject: Re: Should text messages by Alaska government employees be accessible to public? | Alaska Dispatch

 Why should anybody else have rights to others' records?   It is not their
state; it is not their city; they are not a citizen or a resident; they pay no taxes there; and they do not do business there.  They have no rights to those entitities' public records; which should be restricted to only those above.

I have property in Missouri and I also have a residence in Ohio.  I would not expect to have any rights to receive public records from any other state or commonwealth; or city or county in any other states.

I agree with federal FOIA rights as I am a citizen.  I agree with states and commonwealths having state public records laws; open records laws; or a
state version of a FOIA.   However, they should not apply to anyone who
does not meet the critera I have defined in this thread.


I hate paper ...
