Following the approval by the Senate Judiciary Committee of the FOIA Improvement Act of 2014, Cause of Action released the following statement:

“The FOIA Improvement Act of 2014 sets limits on the ability of agencies to stonewall requesters, which is why the Senate Judiciary’s approval is a move in the right direction for all who have an interest in a more transparent federal government,”  said Dan Epstein, Executive Director of Cause of Action. “As a watchdog group working on behalf of taxpayers, we support steps to establish greater accountability for agencies that currently hinder government transparency through FOIA.”
