Knight Foundation survey seeks feedback on FOI laws

The Knight Foundation is conducting a national survey to better understand the freedom of information landscape in the United States and what might be done to improve it.

The Knight Foundation survey asks about access to information at the local, state and federal level.

Anyone interested in Freedom of Information laws is invited to share their thoughts. The online survey takes about 15 minutes and will be open until Jan. 1.

To take it, go to Knight FOI Survey.

I encourage all journalists and citizens in the state who have used the public records laws in Tennessee — or the federal public records laws — to provide feedback so Tennessee is well-represented.

The results will be reported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation this spring.
