Texas law gives you the right to access government records. All government information is presumed to be available to the public; however, certain exceptions may apply to the disclosure of the information.
Governmental bodies are to promptly release requested information that is not confidential by law or information for which an exception to disclosure has been sought.

Exceptions to the Public Information Act
TMB receives a large number of public information requests for:
- complaint information and investigative files,
- disciplinary hearing materials, and
- licensure application files.
These materials are the subject of two Texas Attorney General decisions that establish that these materials are specifically exempt from disclosure under the Texas Public Information Act (PIA). Consequently, when making a request to TMB under the PIA, please note that these documents/materials are excepted from release to the public by two Pre-Determination letters from the Office of the Attorney General, available at the links below:
