Strengthening FOIA

We’re delighted that just before the July 4 holiday, President Obama signed into law critical reforms to strengthen the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the vital disclosure tool for journalists and the public. Congratulations to our media partners, especially Sunshine in Government, for its patient, steady work in this victory.

Other briefs that ONA recently joined:

  • a challenge to Idaho’s “ag gag” law, which restricts a broad range of activities related to agricultural facilities and could restrict activity even from public property.
  • support for summary judgment in Freedom of the Press Foundation v. Department of Justice in California, challenging the government’s basis for withholding the rules, guidelines, policies and procedures governing the FBI’s use of National Security Letter (NSLs) to obtain journalists’ communications records under FOIA.
  • support for appellant Jesse Friedman, who was denied access to witness statements provided to local law enforcement under the confidential source exemption in New York’s Freedom of Information Law (FOIL). See more updates from ONA’s Legal Committee.
