Senator John Cornyn is a longtime supporter of open government. In the statement below, Senator Cornyn commemorates OTG's 10th anniversary.
Congratulations to OpentheGovernment.org on 10 years of service to government transparency and accountability. During my time in office, they have been a key source of information and support in our efforts to improve the Freedom of Information Act. They were a particularly valuable ally to me and Senator Leahy in passing the OPEN Government Act of 2007. I am grateful for their support in these efforts and look forward to working with them as we continue our efforts to bring more sunshine to government.
