Now Accepting Nominations for The Foilies 2017

Third Annual “Awards” Recognize the Worst in Government Transparency

By David Maass, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Jan. 9, 2017

Government transparency shouldn’t be a battle, but too often when the public wants to see what their officials are up to they’re met with resistance, hostility, obfuscation, and even retaliation.
