Do I have to tell the government why I want the record?

You are not required to state the purpose for the record or the reason you want the record, but there are exceptions. Some records are available only if you can show certain reasons why you qualify for the record such as a limited criminal history of a person. In that case, the public agency would not be in violation of the law if it asked you to establish why you qualify for the record. Very few records fall within this exception.
