Open Public Records Act (OPRA)
OPRA is a new state law that was enacted to give the public greater access to government records maintained by public agencies in New Jersey.

Government records available from Legislative offices are primarily Legislative records. If you want a government record from an Executive agency such as, for example, the Department of Education or the Department of Environmental Protection, you should go to the New Jersey web site at and click on "Departments/Agencies" and then select the particular agency or department. If you are looking for New Jersey court records, the New Jersey Judiciary may also be accessed through the New Jersey web site by clicking on "NJ Judiciary."

Further, the Open Public Records Act requires that State entities provide access to government records in their possession, with certain exceptions. The Open Public Records Act does not require or authorize State entities to provide legal services to private parties.

Finally, if you only need a copy of a New Jersey Statute (law), the New Jersey Statutes may be accessed through the Legislature's home page. Generally, the New Jersey Statutes and the New Jersey Administrative Code (Executive Branch regulations) are available at public libraries.


Select the legislative office from which you wish to receive information.
