EPIC, Coalition Urge OMB to Protect the Privacy Act and FOIA

EPIC, OpenTheGovernment.org, and a coalition of over 40 groups urged the Office of Management and Budget to "suspend action on any pending rules or regulations that would diminish the effectiveness of the Privacy Act or the Freedom of Information Act." The Acts ensure government transparency while protecting personal information retained by government agencies. EPIC has filed numerous Freedom of Information Act lawsuits to increase transparency around government surveillance programs. In public comments to federal agencies, EPIC has consistently recommended stronger privacy protections and argued against agency proposals to exempt themselves from the safeguards of the Privacy Act.
