The purpose of this website is to facilitate collection and posting of certain official government records (state, federal etc) that are of specific scientific interest.

The records posted here have been obtained via official requests using the U. S. Freedom of Information Act and/or corresponding State Open Records or Sunshine Laws, such as Ohio's Open Records and Open Meetings laws and Georgia's Open Records Act. These records are therefore now public domain.

A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. - James Madison

Information is the currency of democracy. - Thomas Jefferson
