Freedom of Information (FOI) Day

March 16th is Freedom of Information (FOI) Day, an annual event on the birthday of James Madison, who is widely regarded as the Father of the Constitution and as the foremost advocate for openness in government. New York State government has been looking at issues of open access to information recently, considering NYSHEI’s Taxpayer Access to Publicly Funded Research (TAPFR) legislation, which may come to a vote around FOI Day.
