Policy and News Update for August 23, 2011 – In Brief

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.
