A recent survey showed small government agencies were highly responsive to public record requests.

Associated Press Legal Affairs reporter Andrew Welsh Huggins wrote about the survey which took place in April.

He says nine of every ten requests made were granted. Welsh-Huggins says the results were a marked improvement over a similar test ten years ago when only 70 percent of requests were successful.
