Subject: "Public Records Act" Request?

I'm listening to a radio commentator here who is talking about
access to public information in the United States.

He is saying that the way to get public records that has teeth
is to make a "Public Records Act" request, instead of a Freedom
of Information Act request.  He says that an FOIA request is
little more than a "pretty please" request, but a Public Records
Act request can be enforceable by the sheriff.

He says that a Public Records Act request is made with a list of
specific questions which the public agency must answer under
penalty of law.

I personally know _nothing_ about law, but if this is somewhere
near true, it might have application in the UFO research field,
I would think.
