The Attorney General of Kentucky, through their opinions and decisions, plays a critical role in interpreting and applying the law. Opinions cover a wide range of legal issues, not just those related to records and meetings. The Attorney General's role extends to providing guidance on the application of laws, resolving disputes, and ensuring compliance with the law by public agencies and individuals.

The Open Records and Open Meetings Acts are pivotal in ensuring transparency and accountability within the public sector. They establish the right of access to public records and mandate the openness of government meetings, thereby fostering a culture of openness and engagement among the citizens and public agencies. This library aims to enhance the understanding of these acts, their requirements, and the exemptions that public agencies may invoke under appropriate circumstances.
