Bill About Freedom of Information is Backed by The House

On Monday, the House approved a legislation that makes the obtaining of government records considerably easier. This was done in the wake of a new congressional report which concluded that the freedom of information process under President Obama’s administration was broken and required serious change.

The bill was approved by a voice vote and would require government agencies to make information publicly available online. The bill would also require agencies to adopt presumptions in favor of disclosing records instead of keeping them shrouded in secrecy. Those that advocate for open government have since praised the bill.
