“U.S. Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) introduced bipartisan legislation Tuesday to ensure greater openness in the legislative process. The bill creates additional legislative transparency by requiring that any future legislation containing exemptions to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requirements be stated explicitly within the text of the bill. It marks one in a series of open government bills on FOIA reforms that Leahy, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and Cornyn, a member of the panel, have sponsored together.”
