FOIA
Question:

What is FOIA?
Answer:

The Illinois Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140 et seq., addresses the public's right to access public records that are created, compiled, or kept by government bodies.

The public body must provide public records unless there is an exemption in the Act that protects those records from disclosure.

The Act doesn't require public bodies to create any public record it doesn't already have.
