The Legislature created the Government Records Council (GRC) to help advocate and enforce the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq. (OPRA) and to help the general public realize its newly expanded right of access to government records. The GRC’s statutory responsibilities are mostly educational in nature, and it is charged with providing OPRA guidance to the public and to records custodians alike. The Legislature’s emphasis on the GRC’s educational role is understandable, since OPRA fundamentally changed the framework for analysis of government transparency issues in New Jersey. The GRC also provides a forum for adjudicating OPRA controversies, which initially served to complement its educational mission, but which has morphed into a quasi-judicial body with its own doctrines and precedents—some of which differ significantly from their counterparts in Superior Court.
