File a Sunshine Law Complaint

The Attorney General is authorized to pursue enforcement of the Missouri Sunshine Law. If you believe a public governmental body has not fulfilled its obligations under the Sunshine Law, you may submit a complaint to our office for review. However, please understand that the Attorney General cannot act as your attorney; we represent the state’s interests in ensuring that public meetings and records are open to the extent provided by law.
