The public's right
to information about government activities lies at the heart of a democratic
government. Maryland's Public Information Act grants the people
of this State a broad right of access to public records while protecting
legitimate governmental interests and the privacy rights of individual citizens.
Similarly, Maryland's Open Meetings Act generally requires
State and local public bodies to hold their meetings in the open.
