Freedom of Information

The House recently voted on amendments to the Freedom of Information Act, an Act which basically requires disclosures of information from federal agencies if requested. The bill, HR 1309, passed 308-117. For those of you following along at home, this means at least 70 Republicans crossed the aisle in bipartisan support for this bill. Rep. Vito Fossella did not however, voting against the bill. I assume after casting his no vote he then screamed 'support the troops' and left the chambers to go work on a non binding Congressional resolution recognizing that squirrels are furry or something of similar importance.
