FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

Enacted in 1966, and taking effect on July 5, 1967, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was created to provide the public a means to request and obtain federal government records, while still allowing sensitive information to be protected from public release. The government must make available to any requester its records unless specifically exempted or excluded in accordance with Title 5 U.S.C. 552, Freedom of Information Act.
