Quinn Vetoes Bill To Limit ''Nuisance'' FOIA Requests


Governor Pat Quinn has vetoed a bill that would have made it tougher for private citizens who send large numbers of requests for public records to local governmental bodies. 

 

Supporters had said the bill… which would have imposed higher costs to obtain such records… was needed to reduce nuisance requests.  But Quinn said the bill would lessen the transparency of government and unfairly penalized people trying to learn more about what public agencies are doing.
