GUIDE TO ILLINOIS SUNSHINE LAWS
The Freedom of Information Act and The Open Meetings Act
This handbook provides assistance to park district boards and management in dealing with the everyday applications of the "Sunshine laws." The Freedom of Information Act is intended to ensure public access to records created and received by local government units, subject to certain exemptions. The Open Meetings Act provides access to meetings of public officials and the decisions they make on behalf of the electorate. Together these two pieces of legislation are considered the "Sunshine Laws" of Illinois.
