Private Prison Information Act of 2017

This bill specifies that a record related to a non-federal prison, correctional, or detention facility that incarcerates federal prisoners is subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in the same manner as a record maintained by a federal prison or detention facility.

A non-federal prison, correctional, or detention facility must disclose information under FOIA unless the information is exempt from disclosure or the disclosure is prohibited by law.
