Forum for Legislative Proposals

The FOIA Council would like to make itself available to interested parties as a forum for legislative proposals involving FOIA or other access-related issues, as a sort of legislative preview. Legislators, government agencies, or any other interested party may present ideas about amendments to FOIA at the FOIA Council's regular meetings. By acting as a forum, the FOIA Council hopes that all persons interested in proposed FOIA amendments will be informed of these proposed amendments well in advance of the next session of the General Assembly. It is the hope of the FOIA Council that the various interest groups will use the legislative preview as a springboard to discuss the proposed amendments outside of the press of the General Assembly session to address issues and possibly reach compromises on the proposed amendments.

The FOIA Council will not automatically study or adopt any of the proposed suggestions. However, the FOIA Council may decide on a case-by-case basis that a particular proposal warrants its further study or discussion.
