This is the March 11, 2014 hearing on "Open Government and Freedom of Information: Reinvigorating the Freedom of Information Act for the Digital Age," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Patrick J. Leahy: "For almost a half a century, the Freedom of Information Act has translated our American values of government openness and accountability into practice by guaranteeing the public's right to get information. So I think it is time that we take stock of just where we are, what progress we have made during the last decade as we tried to improve FOIA [Freedom of Information Act]. We will also examine proposals to reform FOIA to address new technologies that were not even imagined at the time it was written and the challenges that remain when citizens seek information about their Government." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Amy Bennett, David Cuillier, Daniel J. Metcalfe, Miriam Nisbet, and Melanie Ann Pustay.
