Transparency: Simplifying & Clarifying State Agency FOIA Policies

More info: news.delaware.gov/2011/10/20/governor-markell-signs-execu...

 

Governor Jack Markell today signed Executive Order No. 31, which requires executive branch agencies to adopt a standardized policy for requests under the state’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Executive Order No. 31 brings greater consistency to agency FOIA policies, makes it easier to file a FOIA request and in many cases, makes it less expensive for citizens to request and receive public records. The cost of a state agency FOIA request will be lowered, in many cases, between 60-and-80-percent.
