Right-to-Know Law

What is Right-to-Know Law (RTKL)?
Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) was designed to increase transparency in the government’s decision-making and activities. The RTKL generally provides public access to the records of Commonwealth agencies, local agencies, courts, and legislative agencies. It is the policy of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office (DAO) to comply with the RTKL, 65 P.S. §§ 67.101–3104.
