OPEN Government Act Heads to Senate Floor

Legislation that would help protect the public's right to know is one step closer to passing. Today the Senate Judiciary Committee marked up the OPEN Government Act, which would provide some much needed updates to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The bill now heads to the Senate floor, and a similar bill has already passed in the House.

Keep up the momentum and tell your representatives to pass this bill now.
