Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is an essential federal open government law that allows for the full or partial disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the federal government. The Act defines agency records subject to disclosure, outlines mandatory disclosure procedures and grants nine exemptions to the statute. AALL works to support strong open government laws and has long advocated for improvements to FOIA.
