Connecticut's Freedom of Information

Connecticut was one of the first states to have its own Freedom of Information Commission, designed to administer and enforce FOIA laws. But things are changing.

A last minute bill passed at the legislature, limiting the release of information about Newtown - but does that set a precedent for future crime scenes?

It’s definitely got people talking about the future of FOI - and spurred the creation of a new task force to see if our current laws are relevant in a new internet age.

Wanna know about Connecticut’s so-called “sunshine law?” Wanna learn about how freedom of information can work for you?
