New York State Freedom of Information Law (FOIL)

According to New York State FOIL Law, “a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.” (From Public Officers Law, Article 6, §84 NYS Committee on Open Government)
