“Sunshine Week” came and went this year without any fanfare from the Illinois Attorney General’s office. Typically, that is when the Public Access Counselor (PAC) publishes its annual report on OMA and FOIA complaints and training sessions. Although I didn’t see any press about the release of the 2018 annual report, it was issued and you can find a copy of the report on the AG’s website here.
- In 2018, the PAC received 3,748 “requests for review” of OMA and FOIA matters.
- 3,372 of these were related to FOIA
- 376 relating to the Open Meetings Act
