OKLAHOMA’S FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT IS THE PROPOSAL AN IMPROVEMENT, OR PROTECTIONISM?
Oklahoma’s version of the Freedom of Information Act does work, although there is plenty of room for improvement. Perhaps the biggest complaint most users have, including us, is that there is no time limit placed on the responding agency to actually make a response to the request. We, as we’re sure many, people and organizations who do use the act to obtain information where initially encouraged to see legislation placing time limits for response. We then started doing some research and feel others should put a stop to this what we feel is nothing more than an attempt to keep information from the public.
