FOIA bill passed the House!

Yesterday the House voted on and passed H.R. 1211, the FOIA Oversight and Implementation Act of 2014.

To get more information on this bill and to view the letter that ALA participated in that was sent to members of the House of Representatives, please visit our webpage.  We will keep you informed as this bill moves to the Senate.

Below is information on an article that I thought might be of interest.
