Trump wants to take away your right to get information. SIGN PETITION.

On August 20, 2019, this information came from the non-profit organization at www.198methods.org:

The Trump administration is trying to rewrite the rules on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in order to keep pollution and corruption hidden from the public.

The key is what’s called a “no records” response, which allows political appointees like Andrew Wheeler and David Bernhardt to decide what information is released to the public.

Fortunately, a bipartisan group of senators has introduced the Open and Responsive Government Act of 2019 to safeguard FOIA requests and ensure the public’s right to information.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SIGN AND BECOME A GRASSROOTS CO-SPONSOR:  https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/open-responsive/?source=group-198-methods&referrer=group-198-methods&action=FOIA&link_id=5&can_id=1d662460c0abb8939c5044c82927552b&email_referrer=email_599462___subject_782372&email_subject=trump-wants-to-gut-your-freedom-of-information
