State Department and Homeland Security Propose Open Government Rules

The State Department and the Department of Homeland Security have each proposed to amend their Freedom of Information Act programs. Both agencies propose several favorable changes to their FOIA programs, including more circumstances in which the agencies would expedite processing for open government requests. The agencies are currently accepting public comments on their proposals until September 28. EPIC recently submitted extensive comments to the Defense Department, opposing several of the agency's plans to amend its FOIA program. EPIC routinely comments on FOIA rulemakings and has had past success with the Justice Department, Federal Trade Commission, and several other federal agencies.
