Lawmakers Renew FOIA Reform Efforts

After narrowly failing to pass FOIA legislation last year, lawmakers in the House and the Senate have introduced the FOIA Improvement Act of 2015. The bill requires Federal agencies to operate under a "presumption of openness" and aims to reduce the overuse of exemptions to withhold information from the public. Senators called for swift passage of the bipartisan legislation which promotes transparency. Last October, EPIC and others urged the President to pursue many of the reforms contained in the proposed legislation.
