Even before Watergate, the Freedom of Information Act was helping guarantee public access to data, documents and other information Americans are entitled to and need to hold government — and government officials — accountable. And right now, during the yearlong countdown to the 50th anniversary of the federal Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, Congress can embrace bipartisan measures that would require federal government to presume openness rather than secrecy, streamline technology so the public can submit public information requests via a single portal, stop allowing agencies
