Public records in real time: Commissioner says state is doing well to fulfill requests
Alaska has a long and proud tradition of open government and citizen access to the state's public records. "Unless specifically provided otherwise, the public records of all public agencies are open to inspection by the public under reasonable rules during regular office hours." Since this law was first enacted in 1962 every governor and administration has fulfilled its requirements, usually without any publicity or hint of controversy.
