Right-to-Know

Act 3 of 2008 establishes 19 types of legislative records which are available to the public. The types of legislative records available under the Right-to-Know Law are spelled out in Section 102 of the law, in the definition of "legislative record." Act 120 of 2010 defines the Independent Fiscal Office as a "legislative agency."

If you would like to make an official request for legislative records from the IFO, your request should be in writing (postal mail, fax, or email). A sample request form (PDF) is available.

All requests should include sufficient detail to allow the Open Records Officer to locate the information requested, and should include the requester's contact information. Requests should be sent to the IFO Open Records Officer:

Open Records Officer: Matthew J. Knittel
Office Address: 2nd Floor Rachel Carson State Office Building, Harrisburg, PA 17105
Email Address: righttoknow@ifo.state.pa.us

You should receive a reply to your written request within five business days, pursuant to Section 901 of Act 3 of 2008.
