Webcast FOIA discussions Thursday and Friday

Here are two hearings this week regarding FOIA that you can attend in your jammies:

1. At 2 p.m. EST Thursday panelists will discuss the state of FOIA at a hearing before the U.S. House of Representatives Information Policy, Census, and National Archives Subcommittee of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Federal Ombudsman Miriam Nisbet will be one of the panelists, along with myself. Watch it live online and check the site later for our written testimony (I include more than 40 citations to studies regarding FOIA in case people want to learn more about backlogs and other issues).

2. OpenTheGovernment.org, Public Citizen, and the Center for American Progress will host a live Webcast event noon to 2 p.m. EST on “Building Government Transparency.” See more information and watch it live. See Nisbet, Patrice McDermott, Sean Moulton and others.
