The Open Public Records Act ("OPRA") provides that government records must be made readily accessible for inspection, copying, or examination by records requestors, with certain exceptions.  OPRA includes twenty-seven (27) specific exemptions from disclosure within its many provisions. 

If a records custodian is unable to comply with a request for access, the custodian must indicate the specific basis on the request form and promptly return it to the requestor.
