ACLU of Iowa launches open government project

From Eastern Iowa Government:

DES MOINES — The ACLU of Iowa is announcing the launch of its Open Government Project, which will be designed to help ordinary citizens with comprehensive help and information for using federal and state right-to-information laws.

ACLU of Iowa Legal Director Randall Wilson said the heart of the project is a new web site that features a “do-it-yourself” section that includes a diagram of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request process, a “how-to” on making a FOIA request, information on requesting fee waivers, instructions for an open records request, information on enforcing open government meetings, and tips for speaking at public meetings.
