Does New York’s Freedom of Information Law work for you?


This survey was sent to approximately 30 civic groups, journalists, think tankers and businesses. If you have co-workers or colleagues who regularly work with FOIL, please pass this survey onto them. And, most definitely, give us comments and suggestions either in the survey or via email at info [at] reinventalbany [dot] org.

Your responses will be private, but we will include totals, and the names of some of the organizations which responded in a report about FOIL that we intend to release in a month or so. The report will argue for government to post more information online, and make that information easier to find and use. We will be happy to share a draft with you as soon as it is available.
