The Farm Bill—and Its Strike at FOIA—Fail. For Now

We previously sounded the alarm on attempts to add amendments to the Senate’s Farm Bill undermining the Freedom of Information Act. The Senate’s version passed without the dangerous amendments. Last week, a similar amendment from Congressman Rick Crawford was added to the House version of the bill. The bill ultimately failed in the House. When the next version of the House Bill arrives, we will be on alert for another attempt to cut off public access to information that is important for public health and safety.
