Freedom of Information Day

March 15th, 2012

March 16 is National Freedom of Information Day. It’s a celebration of the Freedom of Information Act that was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1966.

The Freedom of Information Act grants Americans the right to easily access information from and about the Federal Government. This law states that every person has the right to review federal records, unless those records are legally protected from public disclosure.

President James Madison

Congress officially designated National Freedom of Information Day as an annual occurrence in 1989. March 16 was chosen to coincide with the birthday of our 4th President, James Madison. He is often referred to as the “Father of the Constitution” and was well-known as a supporter of government transparency.

Madison authored the Bill of Rights and served this country as a politician for most of his adult life. He was also a staunch advocate for giving the public access to information related to the federal government.
