Cause of Action, which was a key supporter of the FOIA Improvement Act, released the following statement in response from Executive Director Dan Epstein:

Despite resistance from some in the bureaucracy and political gamesmanship in the Senate, the American public’s desire for greater transparency allowed our Senators to cross the aisle to pass historic FOIA reform.  Cause of Action celebrates the passage of the FOIA Improvement Act because it will make our government more accountable and transparent for the public it serves.
