Groups Support Leahy Amendment to Push Back DOD Secrecy

OpenTheGovernment.org and a wide range of nonprofit organizations sent a letter to the Senate today in support of an amendment by Senator Leahy to the National Defense Authorization Act to improve an over-broad and ill-defined provision relating to “critical infrastructure information,” in Section 1044 of the bill. As we’ve discussed before, as written the provision would allow the Department of Defense (DOD) to to keep information that is even more critical to public health and  safety out of the public’s hands.
