One of the changes to the Public Information Act (the “PIA”) as a result of the 2019 Texas Legislative Session is the creation of section 552.235 of the Government Code.  Section 552.235 requires the Office of the Attorney General (the “OAG”) to create a public information request form for use by Texas governmental bodies. The PIA requires governmental bodies, who allow requestors to use this form, to post the form on their website.  

Governmental bodies may download the Public Information Request Form

If you have questions about the OAG’s Public Information Request form, please contact the Open Government Hotline at (512) 478-6736 or toll free at 1-877-673-6839.
