BGA Urges Gov. Quinn to Amend or Veto Changes to FOIA


The Better Government Association is urging Governor Pat Quinn to amend or veto a bill aimed at reducing nuisance requests for public documents.

 

The legislation allows local governments to charge up to $100 for excessive citizen requests under the Freedom of Information Act.

 

During the weekly "Full Disclosure" segment on 970 WMAY, Andy Shaw of the BGA said that fee is unfair and will inhibit efforts by citizens to keep tabs on government.
