Comment On President Obama’s New FOIA Policy

“From the start of his transition to the White House, President Obama has made a clear commitment to open government.  By issuing this order to strengthen the Freedom of Information Act, and ensure the American people have a more transparent government, he is turning the page and moving away from the secrecy of the last administration.  I commend President Obama for recognizing that our government is accountable to the people it represents.”
