Following up on the previous post I made last week about the FOIA Executive order signed by President last week. Statements by Sens. Cornyn and Leahy, Rep. Platts (who had introduced various FOIA Bills in 2005) are now available. The Coalition of journalists for Open Government have produced an analysis document.

Also in the US - Post Katrina-Related Contracts Online, Groups Tell Bush: read the press release on the "open the government" website

More generally in the US: a report entitled "Government Secrecy:is too much information kept from the public" has been published by Congressional Quarterly (24p, PDF)
