Freedom of Information Day reminds us that the Freedom of Information Act offers us the right to stay informed by requesting access to records from any federal agency. Federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested under this act unless it falls under one of the nine exemptions such as personal privacy, national security, or law enforcement. To remain up to date on what's happening in our government, be sure to exercise your freedom!
"I don't believe that Freedom of Information laws, which have arbitrary time periods or broad blanket exemptions, meet the level of transparency that society needs today."
