Ensuring Government Transparency Through FOIA Reform, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Government Operations of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, February 27, 2015   [open pdf - 2MB]

"This is the February 27, 2015 hearing on 'Ensuring Government Transparency' held before the House Subcommittee on Government Operations. From the opening statement of Mark Meadows: ' truly of the people, by the people, and for the people, the American people need to know what our government is doing on their behalf. Transparency also gives our citizens the opportunity to make informed decisions, to hold accountable those in government that will abuse or perhaps mismanage the public resources. [...] But under this particular law, what we have seen over and over again is a lack of compliance, a lack of transparency. And, unfortunately, when that happens, a lack of trust follows it. And what this is all about is looking at reforms. The ranking member and I both agree that, in order to restore trust, you have to have that transparency.' Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Miriam Nisbet, Frederick J. Sadler, and Rick Blum."
