About The Event

RESTRICTIONS TO FOIA MEANS LESS ACCESS TO GOVERNMENT INFORMATION FOR THE PUBLIC AND PRESS

We should be seriously concerned and respond accordingly.

🔴 We'd tell you to go now and comment, but the government #shutdown means the website is not maintained and they're not taking comments, which means the people should demand an extended period for comments.

Please prepare your comments now and keep trying to access the website. We expect the website to be back up and running as soon as the shutdown ends...whenever that is.

INFORMATION

As of 1/28/19, the site is still down.
