Freedom of Information Act

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), as amended, represents the implementation of freedom of information legislation in the United States.[1] It was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson on September 6, 1966 (Public Law 89-554, 80 Stat. 383; Amended 1996, 2002, 2007),[2] and went into effect the following year. This act allows for the full or partial disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the United States Government. The Act defines agency records subject to disclosure, outlines mandatory disclosure procedures and grants nine exemptions to the statute. [3] The law was ratified in 1966, coincidentally 200 years after what is believed to be the first Freedom of Information Legislation, Sweden's Freedom of the Press Act, in 1766.
