On The Media - News, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) foiled again

After fifteen years of struggle the FOIA Ombudsman legislation was approved by unanimous approval from both the US Senate and the House was signed into law on Dec. 31, 2007. (do you know how rare veto proof legislation is?)

Then buried in the new $3 TRILLION Bush budget, on page 239 of the appendix of the Commerce Department section, without mentioning FOIA, or the Office of Government Information Services (the new FOIA Ombudsman), President G.W. Bush closed the office and transfered the FOIA request services to the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT! The very department that has been so instrumental in covering up many of the latest Bush scandals!

There is still hope, the congress is not likely to stop the budget, but Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., who authored the FOIA overhaul with Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, vowed to restore funding for the job at the National Archives. Support them, and open the doors to our government information and archives.

ONLY IN THE LIGHT OF DAY CAN WE END THE SECRETS.
