Some good news from Congress--for a change.

"The Freedom of Information Act turns 50 years old next month, and just in time to celebrate, Congress has sent the president an update co-authored by Texas Sen. John Cornyn.
“A healthy democracy requires an open and transparent government, and this bill will help ensure all Americans have better access to their government,” said Cornyn, the deputy Republican leader, who teamed up with Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy on the effort.
The White House said in March that President Barack Obama would sign the bill into law, and the Senate approved the measure that month. It cleared the House on  a voice vote Monday."
