US Freedom of Information
The United States government adopted the Freedom of Information Act on July 4, 1966 ostensibly to give the people the right to request and receive public documents that government agencies hold. Many different government agencies and states have adopted different standards for releasing public information documents to the public. This section is for curating, organizing and publishing US government public information records. It is hoped that allowing individuals access to public information will allow them to exert more control over their government.
México - Ley Federal de Transparencia y Acceso
The <strong>Ley Federal de Transparencia y Acceso a la Información Pública Gubernamental</strong>, or the <em>Federal Law on Transparency and Access to Governmental Public Information</em>, was adopted on June 11, 2002. The law recognizes the right of Mexican citizens to access public information records and sets the framework for accessing the documents.
