CFP-113 / Access To Government Information

Addresses implementation of individual and corporate access to federal, state and local information about communities, corporations, legislation, administration, the courts and public figures. How can a balance be struck between dual goals of allowing access while protecting privacy? What about associated costs? Does privatization of government information deny the public access to data collected with their tax dollars? What role do public libraries play in this issue? Chair: Harry Hammitt
