How does FOIA fit under the Trump administration?

In the absence of new directives from the Trump administration, open government advocates from the public and private sectors are continuing their work to strengthen and expand the use of the Freedom of Information Act.

FOIA is a 50-year-old transparency law compelling the federal government to disclose information requested by citizens, with certain exceptions for privacy and security concerns. The Freedom of Information Act Advisory Committee, which met on Jan. 26 in Washington, is a panel created in 2014 to encourage dialog between government and the requestor community.
