Policy and News Update is on recess this week. We'll be back in your inbox on Tuesday, September 6th. Also coming after Labor Day is our eighth annual Secrecy Report, a quantitative report on indicators of government secrecy. This year's report, the first to include a full year's worth of data from the Obama Administration, includes an overview of the Administration's major open government policies. Also, thanks to our friends at MuckRock- an online tool to help people manage requests for government information, this year's Secrecy Report examines data on Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from both the government and requesters' perspective.
