Freedom of Information Act
The Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") is a federal law giving the public a right to access information from the federal government. Enacted in 1966, it provides that any person has a right, enforceable in court, to access federal agency records, except to the extent that such records (or portions of them) are protected from public disclosure by certain exemptions or exclusions. The exceptions and exclusions protect classified information, individuals' privacy, confidential information used for law enforcement purposes, and trade secrets.
